About the Retreat

Welcome to a creative week of ceramics exploration at The Cool Projects studio space and relaxation at the Grapevine House and around Aegina! Immerse yourself in the serene beauty of this idyllic island, let go of stress and open up to a journey of creative flow in the art of ceramics. This is a retreat for people who prefer to work on their own or in small friendly groups of up to 4 people, which makes it ideal for a close group of friends to book it.

Retreat Highlights:

1. Grapevine House Accommodation

Nestled amidst olive and pistachio trees and a garden dotted with more trees, flowers and a few old grapevines, the Grapevine House is a charming, little haven that provides a serene backdrop for your creative week. The house sleeps 1-4 and has two bedrooms - one with a double bed, the other with two singles, a  shared kitchen and bathroom, communal indoors and outdoors space, thus offering a sense of community among participants of hte retreat. 

2. Creative Flow Ceramics

Working with clay is a meditative activity: time disappears and we are called to be in harmony with it. It is with this meditative approach that I would like to guide you through this workshop, whether you are new, or not, to clay. Working with clay is about listening. Listening to what is happening right here and now as we hold it in our hands: from wedging all the way through to shaping it into a final piece. I will present you with the various possibilities at hand, and we will choose together how the workshop will unfold, making sure that by the end of it you will have fired pieces to take back home with you. For more details on how the ceramic workshop could unfold, please check our workshops page.

3. Culinary Delights

Indulge in the rich flavours of traditional, authentic Greek cuisine: daily, takeaway lunch from a local tavern, ensuring you stay energized and nourished throughout your artistic journey, and complimentary breakfast at the Grapevine House. We will have filled your fridge and kitchen with  local produce so that you can make your breakfast and dinner as you  please. We want ot make sure  you stay nourished and energized  throughout the week! You can of course choose to explore local restaurants and tavernas and decide to have dinner in town, followed by a  stroll along the port and a drink at our favourite bar.

4. Day Trip Excursions

We will venture beyond the studio space to explore areas where local ceramists used to pick clay from. In this way we will discover more of the island's cultural and historical treasures. Time allowing, we might also go on a day trip to the Aphaia Temple, an ancient marvel steeped in mythology, and Palaiochora, a hidden gem of historical significance.

5. Sustainable Surprise Gift

As a token of appreciation for your commitment to creativity and sustainability, you will receive a surprise gift. Unwrap a package filled with freshness and locally produced delights, a tangible reminder of your creative journey in Aegina.

Connect with your creativity, share your experience with dear friends, leave with memories and skills to be explored and enjoyed further, in your own pace and space.
