23rd September – 27th   2019 Artists Retreat Week
Time to experiment with your own work amongst other creatives and friends, building a community of people who love the sea and art. I am there to offer insights to unblocking creativity using yoga and mindfulness techniques. Tess Armitage will be there painting and offering tuition throughout the  week.

Time to explore your own creativity!!

Retreat with me to The Big Beach House on the stunning Hayle beach. We will visit the magical St Ives, wander around the town, walk along the beaches, sketch in Barbara Hepworth garden and breath in the Spring air. Stretch your body, feel alive and creative.

Enjoy the healthy, home-cooked meals and juices. You have the option to create wall art, sculpt with wood or soapstone, paint and journal.

Accommodation

The Big Beach House is a large colonial-style villa built for a sea captain in 1908. It stands in the finest position with its own private lane and lawns just above the wonderful 3 mile sandy beach of Hayle, and commands wonderful uninterrupted views westerly across St Ives Bay facing the sunset. It is adjacent to the coast path and the special flora and fauna of Hayle Towans – the extensive sand dunes which back the beautiful beaches. We don’t claim to offer luxury accommodation, but if you’re looking for comfortable seaside accommodation near St Ives this is it.

Creativity happens in every room of the house from the dining room to the conservatory and playroom. The art materials are available for you all weekend or bring your own and take yourself off to be inspired. The accommodation is comfortably furnished allowing creativity to flow!
