IN PARTNERSHIP WITH
If you’ve been longing for a retreat that centers on inspiration, that features energizing workshops, welcomes you into a unique community of peers, provides an escape from the day to day, and that’s filled with exploratory activities to engage your creative side, then the Makers Retreat is the place for you! We will explore creative discontent while honoring play and curiosity, and will consist of meaningful workshops, nature walks, and meandering conversations with good old fashioned Midwestern hospitality provided - all with the goal of fostering a sense of community amongst an array of interesting creative minds.
Friday: Intro to Getting Unstuck.
Saturday: Shut Up and Pay Attention. Getting unstuck using nature and watercolor.
Saturday: Yes, and You?: getting unstuck together. Getting connected through improv.
Sunday Morning: Sincerely Me: postcard writing to your future self.
Note: Friday and Sunday are only available for weekend retreaters. Additional optional workshops will be shared upon arrival for weekenders.
We often hear from folks that they don’t know where to start: the proverbial creative block. Creative blocks are not limited to creative projects. We know that movement, making and play can help problem solve and get us “un-stuck” in all areas of life. As makers and business owners, we lean into the visual and the analog and we wanted to create a space where others could do the same. A space where a small community of people can try new things, learn new tools, and find new inspiration in familiar spaces. To leave with a box full of tools to incorporate exploration, play, and creativity into a daily rhythm. Curiosity Studio is non-judgement zone where messes are encouraged and you walk away understanding how delightful the creative process can be.
Stay with us for the weekend at Crooked Creek Retreat! Located by the St. Croix River just 90 minutes north of the Twin Cities and 90 minutes south from Duluth. Situated amongst natural grown prairies, valleys and woodlands are several cabins that will welcome you with a roaring wood burning stove and your favorite record.
All Rooms have access to washroom facilities—even campers, (but we won’t judge you for “roughing it”.)
