Event description

Description

A full day retreat created & curated intentionally to gather entrepreneurial women in community to explore the relationship between creativity & self care.

Gather with kindred spirits and immerse yourself in the creative worlds of each facilitator, who will share deeply how her own creativity informs her journey as a woman and as an entrepreneur.

Step out of your head and into your heart via two hands-on artisanal workshops that inspire and ignite that which is dormant or needs expressing in you.

Leave feeling rested and fed via new friends, a shared organic harvest table meal and the beauty of taking space to listen to your own voice.

WHO’S IT FOR?

Women Entrepreneurs, Creatives, Artists and Leaders, (and moms!) – those of you who have spent your time and energy investing in your businesses or creative projects and find yourself at the bottom of your own priority list. This is an offering for those of you who are feeling burnt out, isolated, lacking in community, in need of creative rejuvenation and inspiration, and a sense of connecting with yourself and your own spirit again.

ABOUT THE FACILITATORS

TAHSIN DHIRANI - Artist, writer, and a lover of beautiful things. Making and creating have been a part of her journey for as long as she can remember. A believer in a slower pace of things, taking time to touch and feel her way through, despite feeling lost at times in our fast paced, digital world. Themes of faith, self-love and internal guidance have come to the surface in her art. At times her work is minimalist and meditative, and others maximal and highly emotive. She likes to be able to tap into both sides of this spectrum as this approach to her practice allows her to release and receive, which may then allow another to do the same in experiencing it.

KATHRYN BONDY - A florist and botanical artist, creating lifelike paper flowers, plants, fruit and insects under the name Golden Age Botanicals. Inspired by how we communicate with each other and with ourselves when we use flowers and the natural world to help us express what words cannot. Golden Age allows her to study and honour nature in a way that is meditative, where her instincts and curiosity guide her completely, and she can venerate the smallest of details that nature so nimbly produces. Love is at the root of the pieces she creates, and it shows in the beauty, fine detail and devotion to realism in all of her pieces.
