This year’s retreat is a truly special all-inclusive Texas experience centered around our own beautiful studio in the Old Village of Bulverde in the Texas Hill Country. Our fully equipped teaching space means you don’t have to bring a single tool or stone – just show up ready to have fun, and we’ll have everything you need to complete these projects. You’ll stay at one of two quaint and rustic cottages we’ve reserved for you at Tejas Rodeo, just a few minutes drive from The Makery, or right across the street at the brand new Eagle’s Landing Lodge (website coming soon!), featuring elegant Texas-inspired suites complete with soaking tubs and luxurious amenities. We’re providing breakfast and lunches served family style in the Village, and we’ll share spectacular dinner experiences together, including a private welcome dinner and reception, a Riverwalk dinner cruise catered by Paesano’s Italian Restaurant, and a Tejas Rodeo steakhouse dinner followed by VIP seating at their weekly rodeo event. (If you’re up for it, there will even be live music and dancing in their outdoor pavilion!). We’ll close out our retreat with brunch on Sunday, followed by a show and tell as we discuss our experiences and creations – and maybe share a few laughs! – before heading home to our own studios.
Best of all, your retreat and material fees include absolutely everything for an amazing week of creative immersion and forging new friendships: all materials, all equipment, all tools, and your lodging and meals. You just need to pack your bags (and bring eye magnification so you can see) and come ready to play (and bring eye magnification so you can see)!
