Art  Retreat over 2-3 days in Tairua,
Coromandel Peninsula.
New Zealand. 


Come to one of the most beautiful places in the world, stay onsite and immerse yourself in art, nature, and the energies of the Pacific Ocean which is only a few minutes walk down the end of the road.  (often spotted are dolphins & ocasionally orca!).
The surf beach is glorious in both summer & winter.
Long walks along the beach,  walks in native NZ bush, rivers, waterfalls,  full moon rising over the ocean,
sunsets to dream about….. its all here.

These retreats are transformational, not only on a creative level,
but also in a way that is unique only  to you.

Bespoke retreats are what YOU want them to be,

I recommend a mix of art/creativity,
immersion in the surrounding area
& chilling out.

Fly solo
Bring a buddy or 2

“Just returned from 2 days of very special ‘girl time’ at the start of the school holidays.
Feeling very lucky to have been welcomed into the world of one or our favourite New Zealand creatives Reina Cottier Artist, who opened her studio and home to share with us tips, tricks and joy in all things creative.  Love, laughter, like-mindedness and learning, all enmeshed in fun times, and friendship.
Reina’s knowledge, openness and unrestrained sharing mean we have taken away much more than a (rather extended) shopping list of art supplies!  Time to get our creative studio (spare room) finished, and carry on where we left off!”
