SAORI Artist-in-Residence

Take some time away to explore the SAORI philosophy in a beautiful and quiet setting on Salt Spring Island, BC.

SAORI Salt Spring and Honeysuckle Cottage offer an Artist-in-Residence program twice per year – in February and November.  If you are interested in coming at another time I offer my regular weaving retreats.

At the Artist-in-Residence, you will have a self-contained cottage and full access to the SAORI Salt Spring studio. This is different than a weaving retreat as it is a self-guided exploration of SAORI.

  • Included:

    • one bedroom fully-equipped private cottage accommodation with full kitchen, wifi, laundry facilities (see honeysucklecottage.ca)
    • unlimited use of the SAORI Salt Spring studio – looms, tools & equipment
    • a chance to explore your SAORI practice without distractions other than the beauty of the island
    • sharing of your work on SAORI Salt Spring Instagram, Facebook and a Guest blog
    • collaboration possibilities with Terri & other local weavers
    • breakfast foods
  • Not Included:

    • transportation to and from Salt Spring
    • transportation on the island (though ferry pick-ups can be arranged)
    • food/meals (other than breakfasts)
    • SAORI instruction (can be arranged at an extra charge)
    • materials
  • Cost

    • $900/person for a one-week retreat
