Winter Warmth Retreat ~ February 21, 2014 - February 23, 2014




Join the Purple Workbench for a weekend to escape the snowy citylife and make time to relax and create. The 5 bedroom luxury cottage is nestled in peaceful forestry adjacent to the Nottawasaga river, just outside of Orangeville.

Like the previous farmhouse retreat, this is your chance to bring any creative project to work on and have all your culinary needs provided for. I'll have optional sewing workshops available if you are looking to brush up on your sewing skills, but any crafty endeavour is welcome! (I'm thinking of bringing my laptop to finish up some digital photobooks...)

On the menu will be heartwarming meals aimed to comfort and soothe away any winter blues, and there will always be plenty of delicious treats and beverages to fill the weekend.

For more information on the event, including registration, please send an email to contact@purpleworkbench.com. Cost is $300 for a private room plus all meals and snacks.
