Summer ends on September 22nd and World Cyanotype Day is September 24th.
Let's celebrate both by creating with like-minded friends these last days of summer.
Join me at The Sassy Goose, in beautiful North Carolina, for a time of creativity and relaxation.

September 22- 26, 2022

What to expect

Our itinerary will start with arriving at the Sassy Goose on the 22nd where you will check in by 4:00.

Once you are settled in, meet your fellow artists over cocktails at 6:00 and dinner at 7:00.


Each day you will have time to create, relax and enjoy learning from each other on these beautiful grounds. There is much to do at the Sassy Goose, from hiking the 50 acre property to swimming or canoeing in the lake. Explore and see Linda's garden, small streams and even a small waterfall.


I also have a couple fieldtrips planned for those interested:

-Hike to waterfalls at DuPont State Forest Friday morning 

-Dinner at Cedar Mountain Café Saturday night 

- Lunch and gallery hopping in Brevard Sunday afternoon.


We will wrap things up on Monday morning with breakfast but feel free to enjoy the property with late check out by 4.

Details:  The Sassy Goose is located in Western North Carolina.  It is an hour from the Ashville airport (AVL) and an hour and ten minutes from Greenville/Spartanburg airport  (GSP).
