Connect with Seattle fiber-based multi-disciplinary artist Mandy Greer on an adventure of fiber, farm-to-table food, environmental stewardship, the natural drama of the Pacific Coast, and the interconnectedness of weaving to the healing nature of learning together.

Join a cohort of 15 creative individuals on June 14th, 15th and 16th, 2019 for an Oregon Coast Farm Weaving Retreat in Nehalem Oregon — just 15 minutes from the Pacific Ocean in Manzanita, at the visionary, sustainable 3.5-acre riverside Retreat Center and Organic Tea Farm, Northfork 53.

The Location: With lodging on-site in a lovingly and artistically restored 1920’s farm house for 10 people, and 5 spots for Day-Trippers - this immersive experience will be about slowing down and reconnecting with the regenerative power of the land and your own creative expression — just 4 hours from Seattle and 1.5 hours from Portland.

With a covered porch and riverside cedar decks, multiple reading nooks inside, a variety of lush gardens to wander, nightly fires in the fire pits and a riverside wood-fired sauna, a picnic dinner on the dramatic Manzanita Beach, this retreat will offer you an abundance of places for ‘fertile solitude’ as well as communal enjoyment!

The Craft: Weaving brings many people peace, and teaches patience, to let go of preconceived ideas and observe what’s happening in front of you without judgement. My personal take on tapestry weaving also encourages you to be bold and play-centered by using unconventional recycled materials, reminding you to connect with your senses — your sense of touch and the pleasure of making something wholly your own . Whether you are a total beginner or have fiber experience, my retreats have people come away with an artwork they are truly proud of and one that carries with it memories of community, gaiety and self-accomplishment.

The Workshop: My teaching style focuses on breaking down complex techniques into specific easily learnable steps, while encouraging intuitive exploration and risk taking by providing an abundance of wild and luscious materials - a huge stash of luxurious boutique, hand-spun and hand-dyed yarns and up-cycled fabrics.

This is an expanded version of my popular 5 hour Weaving Wall Hanging Workshop, but with several more techniques taught - about 7 total, with many more special materials - like hand-dyed indigo upcycled fibers and yarns, and featuring hand-spun yarns grown from sheep on two neighboring farms, supporting local economies: hand-spun Icelandic wool from Lance's Farm Vittles and hand-spun Targhee wool from Meadow Harvest Farm.

And this retreat has a generosity of time - more than 10+ hours at your loom - to really go deep into your design and weaving process.
