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.
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, Tanya, Pam and Jan for an early dinner at one of the local cafes, a takeaway or a bbq at the venue.
