And the countdown is on.....
As of today, it is only three weeks, or 21 days until Nina begins her Dwellingup Retreat and 31 days until Melbourne!!
Are you excited yet??????
Just a little update to keep you all in the loop and advise you of a few things.
Registrations will take place in the foyer of the Swinburne Conference Centre on Thursday May 15th May from 12noon until 4pm. At registration you will receive your class map to advise you to where each class is to be held.
If you are attending a Thursday workshop, we will take your registrations from 9:30am in the foyer.
If you are unable to make the Thursday registration, could you please advise us by email so we can organise a Friday registration prior to your first workshop.
If you are only attending 1 or 2 days of workshops, your registration will be taken from 8:30am on the morning of your first workshop.
For those who have ordered kits, these will be available at registration.
Friday, Saturday and Sundays workshops will run from 9am to 4:30pm, with the leniency of running over to 5pm if needed.
Lunch will be 12:30 - 1:30.
SATURDAY EVENING ENTERTAINMENT
We are pleased to announce that on Saturday 17th May we have organised to dine at Dantes Restaurant in Fitzroy. The cost is $38 per person and is payable to the restaurant on the evening. Please visit here to obtain more information and view the menu.
We hope you will be able to join Jacky, myself and the tutors at this lovely relaxed event.
Class kits are online and Ninas will be completed tomorrow (or this evening if all goes to plan). If you require certain items from the kits, please contact us and we will let you know prices etc... These can be delivered to you at the retreat to avoid postage costs. We have been receiving alot of orders in the past couple of weeks, so please bear with us as we get them all packed and posted out to those who have requested them.
We will be setting up a trade area so you may shop to your hearts content. Exhibitors include Artistic Journey, Ro Bruhn and all our US tutors. I am sure there will be something available to suit everyone there! I know I am really looking forward to what the other exhibitors will have to offer.
At Artistic Journey we have been busy sourcing some amazing things for all of you and we are so excited about what we have put together! There is vintage and metals and paint and papers and stamps and books and magazines and the list goes on... Many items will be offered exclusively to retreat delegates and will not go online or in our shop until after the retreat.
ART JOURNEY RETREAT 2009
Yes, I realise that we haven't had our 2008 retreat yet, but we are already setting the wheels in motion for 2009. Once again this will be held somewhere On the East of Australia, possibly Sydney. We are approaching some wonderful tutors who will bring a wide range of artistic talent and techniques. This will also be some time May - July 2009. Sorry I have to be so vague but don't want to say too much until we have firm commitments. Stay tuned....
So, with 21 days and counting, I will sign off for now on the promise of another update next week!
See you all soon.........
