Lake District Artist Retreat

Winder Hall
23rd - 27th May 2022

Come and experience practicing your art with other like minded artists on hand picked locations in Northern Cumbria with guides Lindsay & Jess Pritchard. The self directed retreat is based in the exclusive setting of the magnificent Winder Hall near Keswick from where we will go out on location to experience creating art in the Cumbrian landscape and culture.

We often hear from both professional and non-professional artists that they don’t have the time to create the artwork they would like to or even just have a good old mess about with some paints so this is an opportunity to get away from life distractions for a few days to enjoy yourself creatively.
