You’ve already experienced the transformation that occurs from coming to Edenwild. It’s time to revisit this beautiful island and recharge once again!  Edenwild-er is designed for our “returners.”  We will revisit a few of the lessons learned from your time at Edenwild and continue to create more fun, memories, and art together.  The format for Edenwild-er will be similar to Edenwild, but with new art lessons to continue your growth as a person and as an artist. 


After an amazing breakfast, mornings will be art focused and the afternoons are yours for exploring the island and the Lopez Island way of life. Enjoy hiking, riding bikes, strolling along the rocky beaches, canoeing or your personal idea of relaxing. Join the Edenwild-er community at dinner for excellent conversation and amazing food!


Dates: October 27-30, 2021

This will be a small retreat with limited spots available, on a first come, first serve basis. We will have the entire inn to ourselves aside from staff members.
