Oregon Coast Retreat
Indigo Magic on the Oregon Coast
Are you craving time for yourself? An opportunity to forge new friendships? A chance to learn the magic of indigo and to embrace slow fashion? Are you ready to return to yourself for a weekend of self-care and creativity on the Oregon coast? YES!?
Join us for a long weekend of indigo dyeing, Sashiko, bundle dyeing, dyeing with wax resist, and hapezome.
When? July 18-21, 2019!
We can’t wait to share this experience with 8 guests during this wonderful retreat. We are staying at the magical Starry Night Inn in Seaside Oregon. The Starry Night Inn is a small, independently-owned, boutique art hotel located in Seaside Oregon. The female-owned inn has been carefully designed with local art and special touches. There are shared social areas including an outdoor firepit, a lobby complete with musical instruments, a relaxing front porch with a propane heater and an infrared sauna located in the spa lounge.
Seaside is a quirky creative town on the Oregon Coast full of vintage charm. You will have plenty of time after our workshop sessions to explore the town, look for treasures in the antique shops, walk the historic prom, rent a paddle boat or a bike and explore the beach. This is the perfect spot for a creative summertime getaway!
WHO ARE WE?
You’ll be joining Shannon Mulkey Green and Christy Bardis Petterson on this adventure! For the past 15 years, Shannon and Christy have organized a craft and vintage market in Atlanta, GA, called the Indie Craft Experience. Their mission has been to provide opportunity to artists from the Southeast and beyond. They are both Teaching Artists at the High Museum of Art and also teach workshops regularly at their studio in Candler Park, a historic intown Atlanta neighborhood. They are both Atlanta natives and life-long artists, with a recent focus on natural dyeing.
Shannon and Christy love the Oregon Coast and can’t wait to share this adventure and their love of art and creativity with you!
We will be staying at the Starry Night Inn. You can choose between a shared room in the Victorian House or a shared cabin with a kitchenette. Two people stay in each room or cabin and will share a Queen bed. We will have a total of 4 guests staying in the Victorian house and 4 guests staying in cabins (8 guests total). You will be paired with a roommate, and room assignments will be determined on a first-come first-served basis.

We will provide supplies for our projects, including four small items for you to dye. You should bring a lot of additional items to dye. Fabrics should be 100% natural: cotton, bamboo, silk, flax, hemp, linen. Please do not bring bath towels because they soak up too much dye.
You may also want to bring your favorite journaling tools, pens, markers, colored pencils, and any other art supplies that bring you joy.
What Should I Pack?
In addition to your extra fabric items to dye (see above in the SUPPLIES section), you should pack clothes to wear while we are dyeing that can get messed up. Indigo will most likely get on your clothes and shoes, and it will not wash out.
Because of all the thought and care that goes into planning a retreat, we can not offer refunds. For your own peace of mind you may purchase a 'cancel for any reason' travel insurance policy.
