Birds of A Feather – Creative Art Getaway

August 10 @ 4:00 pm - August 12 @ 12:00 pm

Birds, Friendship and Summer

It’s true what they say: Birds of a Feather Flock together. This August, we are flocking to Palmquist Farm in Brantwood, Wisconsin for a weekend of learning, connecting, and creating. If you’re looking to meet some new feathered friends who share your love of being creative, this is the retreat for you. Or if you already have a flock, bring them along!

You’ll learn calligraphy, bullet journal basics, and watercolor painting plus many more fun projects. The culmination of the retreat is an epic planner bar that you have to see to believe: stamps, stickers, decorative tape, scrapbooking paper, pens, and a Cricut at your disposal. Go wild!

It won’t be all class though. There will be social time with games and prizes to make it more fun! For those who need some time to decompress, Palmquist Farm offers hiking trails and a wood-burning sauna.

Birds! Friendship! Summer! What’s better than that? This is a very unique opportunity, you don’t want to miss it – as it will fill up very quickly! We hope you can join us! 


All our cabins have wood-burning fireplaces and comfortable, country-style décor. Each one is unique, cozy, and rustic in the best way. Each participant will enjoy a private bedroom (unless you choose to share with a friend/family.), but due to limited space you may have to share a bathroom. However, if you come with a group of friends you will be given your own space to share with your friends.


The Palmquists are of Finnish farming heritage, and Finnish farmers’ wives know how to cook—hearty, robust, bountiful, using the best ingredients, and often! Our meals are nutritious and well-balanced with a variety of meats, soups, vegetables, salads, and desserts, featuring some special Finnish dishes including The Farm’s award-winning creamed rice and raspberry sauce, oven pancakes with pure Maple Syrup, and Finnish whole wheat bread. Mealtime is always a treat! We can also accommodate dietary needs if you give us a heads up.
