Is there much free time?
Giving yourself time-out is as important a part of the creative process as the workshops. Plus, Magnetic Island is such a beautiful spot, with beaches and a National Park to explore. Because of this, the retreat program includes a daily four-hour break between morning and afternoon sessions.
Where is the retreat held?
At the Amaroo on Mandalay Resort, Magnetic Island. Numerous cafes, a wine bar and a supermarket lie within an 11 minute stroll of the resort, or 2 minutes by bus. The island bus stop is just outside the resort's front door.
What about meals?
Breakfast is included in the retreat fee. All other meals can be taken at local cafes.
Do I need to bring an instrument with me?
You don't need to, but it wouldn't hurt. If you do plan to bring an instrument, make sure it's in a hard case suitable for travelling. Ukeleles are a great option, even if you're a beginner player – they're cheap, light, portable and very simple to play.
Will I be left to my own devices outside of class times?
Only if you want to be. Most evenings, you'll be invited to join Jane for an early dinner at one of the local cafes.
How much is the retreat?
$1695, which includes 8 days/7 nights' accommodation, breakfasts and an air-conditioned, twin-share bedroom with kitchenette and ensuite bathroom.
A limited number of queen private studio rooms are also available for an additional fee of $520.
