Emily Katz returns to The Barn in Tivoli this Fall for a 2-day Immersive Macramé Retreat.

Escape to the country for an inspiring weekend getaway where you'll learn basic and advanced macramé knots. You'll get to create three unique macramé pieces; a plant hanger, a garland and a chandelier. We'll incorporate colored rope and different rope thicknesses. Advanced participants can choose to create a dream macramé piece instead, while taking advantage of Emily's guidance & expertise.

We'll start the days with morning yoga in the crisp October air followed by farm-to-table meals and workshops by the wood burning stove. Our days will end with delicious family style dinners and plenty of conversation around the fire.

For our Saturday dinner, we will style our table using the garlands we created that afternoon. It will be a celebration of the work accomplished so far!

On Sunday morning we'll have a very special treat. Jana of the beauty line Captain Blankenship will guide us in creating a personal signature perfume using pure & wild crafted plant essences. You'll get to make your own special blend to take home.

Accommodations will be available at The Barn in Tivoli and at the Modern Boho Saltbox (at Homestead 33, the same property).

Signature Essence Making with Jana of Captain Blankenship
150.00

Sunday Oct 30th - 10am

Jana Blankenship of Captain Blankenship will delve into the art of natural perfumery and the perfumer's palette. While smell is our first sense to develop, it is arguably our least cultivated. We have the power to identify thousands of scents, so let's play! We will get our noses deep into a range of organic and wild harvested essential oils and absolutes from Jasmine to seaweed and explore how to build a perfume from the roots up. We will explore how scent influences our other senses, the emotional impact of smell, and try to trace some of our scent-based memories. Everyone will leave with an organic oil based perfume that they have concocted themselves.
