Get ready for a fabulous fall retreat October 18-20! We are staying closer to home this time at the beautiful Dumas Bay Centre. The stunning views of Puget Sound will inspire great artistic creativity and joy!
It’ll be easy peasy and oh so relaxing since you’ll be fed six delicious meals and have three full days of marvelous arts & crafts! Private rooms await, two spacious crafting rooms beckon and gorgeous grounds will surround you.
Come together and center into mindfulness with visioning morning circles and reflective evening circles. Get ready to play and learn a lot - possible classes include how to make flag books, fiber amulets, crowns and intuitive painting or other similar delightful activities. We’ll be doing some visible mending and boro during open crafting times in the evenings, so bring something with holes to mend! :)
Bring non-refrigerated snacks to munch on during the weekend and some to share too, if so inclined.
SWAPS were such a hit last year we are starting a new Tarts retreat tradition!
Girl Scouts often make small tokens of friendship to exchange with the other Scouts they meet while traveling. These little gifts are called ”SWAPS,” which stands for “Special Whatchamacallits Affectionately Pinned Somewhere.” To see some examples go to our Pinterest board https://www.pinterest.com/tacomaartsandcrafts/fall-retreat-2018/swaps/.
Make 26 of them ahead of time or finish them up on Friday night - we'll be swapping after lunch on Saturday.
NOTE: The retreat is full but if you want to be on added to the wait list, please contact Kathy Koch.
