WHo ARE THE RETREATS designed for? 

Anyone who loves creativity! There are absolutely no prerequisites for inspiration, play and learning. You can be someone who's never picked up a paintbrush; a man, woman or teenager (who's ready for an experience like this); a working artist or trained designer looking to infuse your current practice by trying a new medium; a corporate lawyer in need of using your brain in a new, different way; a mom and daughter or dear friends looking to share a special experience. Although our retreats attract a female crowd, men are so very welcomed!  

can i bring my child?

Most of our retreats are designed for adults, but only you will know if your child or teenager would be ready for an experience like this. Please contact us to discuss the possibility if this is something you're interested in. We hope to host more retreats designed with children in mind.  

What is the cost of a retreat & what does it include? 

The overall cost of the retreat varies due to location, length, format, meals and ancillary activities. Prices range from $245 to $1,595 and include all workshops, most class materials, meals, gifts, inspirational speaking events and self-care elements. In some cases, accommodations are included in the cost which will be specified, but if not, special room blocks and retreat lodging will be set up for participants to book separately or other lodging options recommended. Travel to and from the retreat is not included. All details will be shared within the description of each retreat. 


We are happy to work with you on a payment plan so please email play@themakerie.com for details. 

What is your refund policy? 

There will be no refunds after a certain period prior to each retreat. No exceptions. We will accept refund requests in writing before the stated refund date and a $250 administration fee will be incurred plus any Eventbrite fees. Transfers are acceptable, but we must be notified in writing of any changes and retreat fee transfers must be done directly between the parties. If you register for a retreat and think that for any reason, you might have to cancel after our refund request date has passed, please consider purchasing travel insurance. 

Can you accommodate special diet needs or preferences? 

In most cases, yes! All you have to do is tell us your needs. For extreme dietary needs, we'll work with you on an individual basis to make sure you're eating experience at our retreat is comfortable and safe. 

How do I submit a workshop idea if I want to teach? 

We typically reach out to our teachers but we're always open to hearing your ideas! Please email us at teach@themakerie.com and include a brief description of your workshop idea and teaching experience, along with several fabulous images and a link to your web site or instagram feed. We’d love to hear from you!
