2021 Retreat in Northern Michigan
The fall retreat on Mackinac Island will be October 10th - 14th!
more details to come
A retreat with Kinship Handwork is more than just a workshop
(although that's awesome too).
It's an experience.
With things like…
- Movement – yoga and group hikes or bike rides
- Mindfulness and going Deep – meditation, thought-provoking documentaries, time spent sketching and planning, exercises designed to gently deepen your sense of self.
- Fun and Connection – a closing party with fun suprises, a horse-drawn carriage ride, meals and time together
Space to explore, or just be or soak in the spa pool. Or tiptoe down to the sewing room and sew into the wee hours.
Frequently Asked Questions

I can understand your hesitation. It’s a big commitment of your precious time and money.

Yes! Most certainly, yes. This is a choose-your-own adventure type of time. Dip your toes in, jump in headfirst, or hang out on the beach…whatever feels good to you.
