This is one retreat you do not want to miss. This year we will be doing completely new and different projects from the prior year retreats!
Who couldn’t use a little R&R before the holidays hit? We can! That’s why we are having our Fall into Christmas creative retreat at Palmquist Farm in Brantwood, Wisconsin. All the projects we have planned will be holiday themed.
Want to get a jump on your holiday home decor? We got you covered with classes on porch signs, wreath making, and more! Going to finally follow through on that pledge to make home-made gifts? This retreat is the perfect place to get started on those hand-made Christmas tree ornaments, crafts, and more! Or maybe you just want a weekend away solo or with friends to learn, connect, and create before the rush. There will be plenty of social time with games and prizes! For those who need some time to decompress, Palmquist Farm offers hiking trails and a wood-burning sauna.
Holiday Decor Projects (TBA)
Come Fall into Christmas with people who are as into the holidays as you are! 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.
Cost and Booking
The cost to attend is $298 – 398 per person for lodging (only). Cost depends on your choice of accommodation and whether or not you come solo or with friends/family. The cost includes hands-on instruction, take home supplies and art pieces, overnight accommodations, fresh made breakfast and dinner, light lunch (we will have snacks and such – you can bring your own favorite snacks to share as well!), social time with games (and prizes to win to make it more fun!), time to relax in the sauna and the opportunity to fall in love with Palmquist Farm! A non-refundable deposit of $300/person is required to reserve your spot.
After you pay your Deposit to hold your spot, we will call you to arrange your room arrangement which is a separate cost to the farm. If you request a private room/bathroom the balance due will be higher. If you choose to share a bathroom and have a private room OR if you come with a group of friends and share a cabin your cost per person will be less.
