Crave Creative Wellness Retreat

We hosted our inaugural Crave retreat in one of our favorite places, Ojai, California. It was such a magical event, full of creativity, inspiration and collaboration. Our three days were full of nature, art and nurturing. The whole weekend was about friends and women being creative together. I wanted to create something I would love to participate in, combining art, nature, and food in a beautiful setting. This journey has been incredible and I am beyond grateful to everyone who joined us. Days were full of eco printing, indigo dyeing and natural dyes. Nights were full of sitting in our creative sanctuary, crafting and connecting together. We ate delicious meals artfully prepared by Souley Nourished. One of the highlights retreat was the nature printing with indigo! Such a beautiful outcome of nature’s patterns! Connecting with nature through art was magic!

Jess Bailey did an amazing job capturing the beauty of the weekend, beauty of Ojai, art and nature. Can’t wait for the summer to host another one!!  

Agnes recently put together a Crave wellness retreat in Ojai with the purpose of combining art, nature, and wellness. I attended and it was one of the best experiences I have ever had! The retreat was located on a gorgeous estate in Ojai, and we got to enjoy healthy meals, hike, and do several craft projects involving shibori, eco-dying, and katazome (Japanese printing with stencils). I love how Agnes provides opportunities to learn, craft, and rejuvenate. It’s so important to take time for oneself, and for me, Crave Workshops provide a wonderful opportunity to do just that.
Thank you to Agnes and her team (including the wonderful Cheryl) for providing space to slow down, create, and bring out the inner artist in us all:)

About Our Retreats

We bring the “creatively curious” together to meet, eat and make something new. Each retreat will be crafted to help participants tap into their creative place while rediscovering the fine art of play. We want our participants to leave at the end of the weekend, inspired by new skills, connected with a new friend and fulfilled to bring home something beautiful.

Our philosophy centers on building a welcoming creative community where each person is inspired and empowered to explore and learn. We will remind you to stay in the moment, get in touch with your inner child, and focus on the overall creative experience rather than the end results. The process is both therapeutic and invigorating.
