Retreat in Sri Lanka

It's not easy  to tell you all that this week will hold without sounding a bit over the top!

That's because Galle is a world of its own, So full of character and charm, I know you'll fall in love with it as I have since living here. It's the perfect place to come and make art. Brimming with inspiration, evocative streets of old Dutch houses retained with authenticity, as the entire Galle Fort is a UNESCO World Heritage site.  Fabulous cuisine abounds, You can sea swim safely, and our retreat is held in its very own garden hotel with lovely wide verandahs, it's calm, unhurried atmosphere  just for us, so we're in a safe, peaceful bubble.

We'll have adventures beyond the fort, visit Lunuganga, Geoffrey Bawa's stunning country residence, and you'll meet many of my friends in Galle Fort - some count their family history within its walls back seven generations!

Here are a few Galle glimpses from earlier this year ... if you've any queries please don't hesitate to be in touch with me by email or on the chat box here or Whats App.

Este has a fantastic program for you and everything's provided. We're really looking forward to meeting you here on the Teardrop Isle for a blissful Creative Living Retreat - possibly the best thing to happen all year!













This is an  all-inclusive tropical painting holiday with art and yoga tuition, fine dining & cultural adventures.

You will be working on projects in watercolour and water-based media and painted paper collage. Two 3-hr art sessions daily dedicated to explorative projects that will build up to a bigger artwork project - expect to surprise yourself!

All materials are included + you'll receive some of Este's favourite brushes, a travelling palette and other art goodies to keep.

Presented by acclaimed UK artist Este Macleod in collaboration with Anna Kwiecinska, who is currently living in Sri Lanka.
