The NARROWS Art Retreat
"ONCE A YEAR,
GO SOMEPLACE YOU'VE NEVER BEEN BEFORE."
The Narrows Art Retreat offers a rare opportunity to nurture your creative spirit in a restful and restorative environment. Taking a workshop at The Narrows, can unfold personal and artistic renewal. We offer one-day to one week intensives with art Instructors in their specialized field, whether, painting, writing, music, fiber arts etc... Workshop listings are added on a continual basis. We also have a strong focus on developing environmental education through the creative arts (working with the seasons), & offers retreats with an ecology focus to adults and youth.
If you are a local or visiting instructor/facilitator wishing to host a workshop at The Narrows, please contact us.
Travel to the Retreat is by boat. Pick up at the Public Wharf near the Prestige Hotel on Nelson's waterfront. A small walk down the dirt road will lead you to The Narrows - the residence and studio, where new experiences await. There are options to take a workshop and stay in town instead of at the retreat.
We are focussing on growing our Artist Residency Program in 2022/2023 and due to COVID, we have to postponed workshops indefinitely.
We still encourage Art instructors to contact us with their workshop ideas.
Before or after a workshop, or if you need more social connection during an Artist residency, choose from more activities to complete your stay.
Enquire for sailboat charters before or after your workshop/retreat.
Workshops/classes for mind, body and spirit available. Please enquire to add on to your art workshop.
