Purple Workbench weekends have a primary goal to give you dedicated time and inspirational space for your own creative projects. Although you might pick up some new interests and improve on some creative skills, the retreat itself is not a weekend packed with learning new things. Guests are encouraged to use this time to catch up on whatever it is you never seem to have time for. From classic creative hobbies like sewing or knitting, to more modern laptop projects of wedding albums, blogs, and digital scrapbooking. Guests have been known to come with a book and an appetite. Anything goes. This time is for you.
