Event description

Description

A skill share retreat for Perth creatives, freelancers, thinkers & doers. Our annual reason to get out from behind our laptops, unplug and connect.

You bring a skill to the table and we build a program based on the strengths of everyone attending: think workshops in photography, watercolor painting, business sessions, ceramics, yoga and/or coffee tasting.

This retreat is all about paving your own way.

There will be multiple sessions in a day with a choice of 2 - 3 in each time slot to suit your interests. You decide if you want to jump in on additional activities or read a book by the fire. You choose whether to embark on a solo bush walk or jump into the kitchen and share your nonna's recipe for lasagne with your fellow retreat folk.

Can't think of a session to contribute? Not everyone has to teach a session, there are other ways for you to contribute and we will be in contact with you about this when you book your tickets.

The retreat starts at 5pm on Friday 12th of April and finishes at 12pm on Sunday 14th of April.

It will be held at Donnelly River Village (3.5 hours from Perth), close enough to drive but far enough away for you to forget about Facebook (plus, there's no reception!) We suggest taking the whole day on Friday to give you time to drive down and to arrive in time for dinner. We will connect you with anyone who is in your postcode in case you want to carpool.

Costs cover all activities, food (aside from your signature dish) and accommodation. You will need to bring your own linen, or contact the village directly to hire. The accommodation is back to basics, self-contained and comfortable, set amongst towering Karri trees in a heritage village that has a whole swag of its own special charms.

We all pitch in at the retreat to keep costs low (and the community spirit high!), you might need to collect food from the fire, help with cooking and we all do the dishes after each meal. Think of it as a holiday stay with (20) friends.

This year we have given you greater choice of what room you book. If you are coming with someone you are comfortable sharing a queen or double bed with please book into a dorm space and email us ASAP at jasmyn.woodford@gmail.com and we will upgrade you (no additional cost). The more people we can fit in the better! Do also let us know if you want to share with someone in particular or would like to bring a little one along (small humans welcome!)

Food provided will be simple, fresh and mostly vegetarian. If you have an allergy or requirement please contact us. Friday & Saturday night will be pot luck dinner, and you will need to bring a dish for everyone to share for one of these nights (a meal for 4 - 6 people). This dish should be the thing people beg you to bring to a dinner party. Ample cooking facilities and fridge space is available at the cabin, and the general store is open 7 days a week.

The program will be released two weeks prior to the retreat.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact jasmyn.woodford@gmail.com.

This retreat is all people powered and isn't for profit. It really is a chance for us to get out and connect with other over what we love best - learning. Prices are a little higher than last year due to additional accommodation costs, we knew the cost for this gem of a place wouldn't last forever. We thank you in advance for your understanding!

We prefer you to be there for the whole retreat however if
you can only make part of the time you are most welcome, there will be n
o discount on cost. Please note there is little reception at Donnelly so any arrangements must be made prior to the retreat.

No refunds. Tickets are non-transferrable.
