Dates Of Retreats in 2024


Workshops run Monday to Friday. You will arrive Sunday in the late afternoon or early evening and leave on Saturday morning after breakfast. You will be welcomed to our private residence next to the Studio.  Meet your instructor and other participants over supper while taking in views of Fogo Harbour.  Monday morning, breakfast will be at 8:30 am and we will be in the studio at 9:30 am. If you are an early riser we encourage you to join us each morning for a hike on one of Fogo Island's hiking trails before breakfast.  There are four to five hours of instruction each day punctuated by lunch.  After your class you can choose to spend more time in the studio or go for an excursion, it’s up to you. The studio will be open to you 12 hours a day during your stay. Suppers are made from scratch featuring local and seasonal fare, wine is included.  Thursday evening you will take supper ‘out’ somewhere on the island. Depart Saturday morning after a solid breakfast, feeling a little sad to leave new friends, and already scheming how to return (that’s what happens here).
