PRINTMAKING RETREATS

A BEAUTIFUL AND PEACEFUL COUNTRY SETTING, GREAT FOR CREATIVE EXPRESSION

In 2019 pending development approval, we will be launching short-stay creative and printmaking retreats with self catered accommodation at Waymount Farm where a purpose built artists studio is currently being fitted out. The creative retreats will offer a setting where guests can enjoy a combination of luxury accommodation and relaxation with creative expression in a beautiful country environment.

Printmaking Retreats

Since 2002, Kim and Kelvin Taylor have been lovingly crafting Waymount Farm to become a retreat centre offering luxury accommodation with creative and wellbeing retreats. It is planned printmaking and creative retreats will be held in late 2019 offering guests an introduction to printmaking set in a wonderful surrounding.

The printmaking retreats will provide an introductory level of printmaking for beginners. Experienced printmakers are welcome to work independently and will enjoy the beautiful and peaceful country setting of a source of creative inspiration. The creative retreats will cater for a maximum of 6 participants.

For further details about the printmaking retreats, send Kelvin an email at hello@kelvintaylor.com.au.

Costs and Inclusions

The cost to attend a weekend printmaking and creative retreat is $575.00+gst per head for accommodation and tuition. A minimum of 4 participants are required for the retreats to go ahead.

Two nights of accommodation (a twin share) are supplied on the premises at Waymount Farm for Friday and Saturday nights. The whole property is reserved for the printmaking retreat attendees. A 50% deposit is required to secure your booking.

The cost of the retreat covers accommodation, morning tea, lunch, and supper on Friday evening, as well as all printmaking equipment and supplies. Breakfast and dinner is to be supplied by the attendees.

Retreat formats

Retreats will be hosted by Kelvin Taylor who has been studying printmaking at Hazelhurst Community Gallery and Art Centre for 8 years and has showed work at exhibitions in Sydney and on the NSW south coast since 2014. It is planned that printmaking and creative retreats be held from November 2017. The retreats run for 2 days and include 2 nights twin share accommodation at Waymount Farm. A maximum of 8 participants are accepted for each retreat.

Printmaking mediums that will be explored include photopolymer (solar) plates, reduction linocut, monoprints and drypoint techniques. Solar plates in particular offer a great artistic opportunity with its low toxicity and quick and simple plate production. Plates are exposed in the sun and washed out in water and ready to print within 30 minutes. Guests will learn how to make a plate and create a unique artwork of their own making.

Gorgeous retreat

"Wonderful stay at Waymount Farm Studio. Kim and Kelvin were perfect hosts. Location is stunning, and perfect position for south coast. Kids would not get out of the pool. Sheep on site was fantastic for a city family to experience. Everything was immaculate and lots of little touches make this an excellent place to stay." Steve, January 2019.

A five star holiday house

"We were looking for something special for some time out and we sure found it. Waymount Farm Studio was super clean, lux and private. We had the pool to ourselves the entire time and our hosts were lovely and welcoming. Could not recommend a stay at Waymount more." - Peta-Marie, February 2019

Fantastic place to stay

"Lovely studio. Perfect for a couple plus our dog. The owners made an effort to meet us, provide a quick orientation and then gave us our privacy. We particularly enjoyed the pool and the garden areas, and overall the studio is clean and tidy. Location-wise you are very close to Berry, Hyams and Callala Beach. Would definitely recommend to other, especially those looking to take their pet with them." Kate, January 2019.
