An immersive pottery retreat

Welcome To Claycation

Where Creativity Meets Connection!

Immerse yourself in a pottery retreat like no other, designed to ignite your passion for creation and forge meaningful connections with fellow enthusiasts. This retreat offers an intimate experience for groups of three to six individuals, nestled in the charming ambiance of a 104-year-old heritage house.

Picture yourself on the newly renovated third-floor attic, surrounded by panoramic views of the Saskatchewan prairie sky. Here, you'll find inspiration in the elements as you embark on a journey through Earth, Water, Air, and Fire.

Throughout the weekend, expert instructor Marea will guide you through four pottery techniques in our basement studio. From mastering the pottery wheel to hand-building techniques, you'll uncover the secrets of crafting functional pottery items with your own hands.

No prior pottery experience? No problem! Whether you're a novice or a seasoned pro, our retreat caters to all skill levels. All materials are provided, allowing you to dive headfirst into the creative process without hesitation.

You'll learn the art of glazing and the intricacies of loading and unloading a pottery kiln. With 25 years of experience teaching visual art and two decades of pottery expertise, I bring a wealth of knowledge and passion to every session.

But.... Elemental Claycation is more than just a pottery retreat—it's a journey of self-discovery and connection. Immerse yourself in the elements as you explore the depths of your creativity and bond with like-minded individuals.

"Claycation is the perfect way to leave the stress of life behind and allows you to take a breath.  The calm that exists is amazing.  Focus on yourself, create a clay masterpiece, read a book or take a nap.  Whatever you do, you will leave refreshed and revitalized."

"Creativity comes in all forms. Reconnecting with old friends at the Claycation, over a weekend of creating was fun. Pottery was something I always wanted to try but now realize how hard it was. I would definitely do this again. The Experience was fantastic."
