In August, Letter Create and Palmquist Farm are hosting a retreat together. We have had the pleasure of being at Palmquist Farm earlier this year for another retreat.
We have a ton of different questions and interest in our workshop so we wanted to take a moment to tell you more about our retreat, the farm and the experience right here!
Will I have to share a room or a bathroom?
No, you will not have to share either a room or a bathroom with someone you do or do not know. It is your choice to choose your own private lodging when you make your reservation. We will constantly update our Facebook Page, Facebook VIP Group, Newsletter and website with what options are available. Palmquist Farm can hold up to 50 people at one time if they really wanted to – so I promise there is plenty of room as of today June, 17, 2018. If you want to make sure you get what you want – here is what we have so far:
Cost depends on your choice of accommodation and whether or not your 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 $160.00 deposit is required to reserve your spot.
After you pay your $160.00 Deposit to hold your spot, we will call you to arrange your room arrangement. 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.
Accommodations Cost Per Person
Private Room/Private Bathroom $479
Private Room/Shared Bathroom $389
Shared Room/Shared Bathroom $379
What will you be teaching?
We will have both of our calligraphers artists on hand – Tracy Klemens who is studying through IAMPETH to be a Master Penman, and has completed training through other online and in-person workshops and courses will be teaching classes along with Marisol Encarnacion, who has attended many workshops, training through Letter Create, self taught through online classes and TONS of practice, as well as local groups – will also be teaching.
Here are the things you will be doing:
Bullet Journal Basics
Planner Bar – this is a fully stocked bar with washi tapes, stickers, stamps, pens, markers, everything you could possibly need to decorate and design your planners and journals!
Porch Sign Painting
What if I do not know anyone or I come with friends?
This is a great question. At our last retreat we had many people that never met but made lifelong friendships over the weekend of creating! We also have groups that choose to come together – in which case you will all get to be in your own, private cabin!
I don’t have any experience…will I still be able to learn?
We teach in such away that anyone can enjoy these classes! We have two teachers on hand to help you if you are at a different stage in your learning for any of our projects, however we are very experienced as we have had a teaching studio – teaching new and experienced students since 2016.
What else will there be to do, other than the art classes?
TONS! You can go to the Finnish Sauna, a hike on the groomed trails, the little town nearby has cute little stores, there is a nearby winery, we will have a yoga, you can bring your bike to go for a ride, you can even bring your own projects to work on in your own time….and if you want more relaxation we will have someone giving massages from a local spa on Saturday!
