Next week I’ll be heading to the Pocosin Cabin Fever Reliever. What is this, you ask? It’s a 4-day art retreat held in Columbia, NC, which is on the Inner Banks, next to the Outer Banks! – beautiful, even in the winter!
This retreat is different from others I’ve attended because I’ll be taking ONE class with ONE instructor for the 4 days that I’m there - Jewelry as Personal Adornment taught by Bob Ebendorf. I’m really excited about learning from this incredible instructor! AND, I’ll be going to places I've never been before with my jewelry making. I’m really excited, and I love that I have four days to practice the new techniques instead of the usual day, or two. Plus, this retreat has open studio time every evening, allowing us to work on our pieces after dinner, if we’re so inclined.
Besides all this arty goodness, I’ll be there with 2 of my best friends! What could be better than four days of playing with new art - at the beach - while having a slumber party??? We’ve already been planning our drink menus. Did I mention there’s a BYOB happy hour every day? My kind of retreat!
This is where we'll be staying. Obviously, this photo was not taken in February! Even if we have time, don't think we'll be doing any sailing! I just checked the weather forecast and it's supposed to be in the 60's - woohoo! warmer days ahead! but still not warm enough for me to be doing any sailing in that freezing water! I say nay nay!! But it's a beautiful place, don't you think?
I hope to have a piece of jewelry worthy of posting when I return. Fingers crossed....
