Yes, I finally did it!! I put into place the very first Women's Mountain Art Retreat (hosted by Roasted) in Lincoln Montana!!
Roasted will be hosting it’s first Women’s Mountain Art Retreat! The perfect get away to spend two nights and three days in the mountains of Lincoln Montana!! The dates are August 23, 24, and 25! There will be four featured artists who work with a variety of materials.
The Women’s Mountain Art Retreat will take place at the beautiful and serene Lumberjack Inn, a bed and breakfast located 2 miles west of Lincoln. A map and pictures are included of the Lumberjack Inn. This beautiful lodge is owned by Brent and Carla Anderson.
The retreat will be centered around relaxation, creativity, peaceful walks in natural
surroundings, and leisurely time to read, visit, create on your own, or perhaps schedule a massage from our local massage therapist. The Women’s Mountain Retreat is being hosted by Roasted: Delectable Art and Coffee. The owner of Roasted, Annie Allen, is a certified art teacher with 27 years of experience working with all ages in mediums such as acrylic, oil, batik, watercolor, ceramics, and collage (not to mention many others).
We will also be featuring Julie Ann Webster who specializes in hand crafted jewelry created from up-cycled materials.
Deborah Rauber will be creating hand-made baskets from natural materials Her work can be seen at Roasted and other fine art establishments.
Photographer/Designer Jana M Suchy has published many books with online printing at Blurb.com--learn how you can too. Peruse Jana's books for inspiration and ideas as we discuss the free downloadable BookSmart software and how it works with the many page templates, fonts, colors, borders and backgrounds to choose from or customize. Jana goes through steps to produce a book, demystifying the process by
showing her published books in design format to glimpse behind the printed pages and see the possibilities. Whether to feature artwork, photos, writings, family histories or commemorative events--you too can become a published author!
Start your day with a cup of gourmet coffee from Roasted, or fresh tea or juice of your choice! A continental breakfast will be provided : cereal with fruit, bagels with cream cheese, scones, and my mom’s delicious cinnamon rolls. Food will be available all morning as you get hungry. If you require a more substantial breakfast, you are welcome to use the kitchen facilities at the Lumberjack Inn. We know that creating art can work up a hearty appetite. The kitchen is always open- 24/7. We'll have snacks available all day and lots of coffee, tea, soft drinks, water, etc. Feel free to use the dining area or outside decks any time you need to refresh your mind, body or spirit. I also recommend bringing a camera, fishing pole (if you are inclined), and good books!
A massage therapist is available all day Saturday. This service is a separate fee. Swedish, deep tissue, and custom aromatherapy massage are available. It is recommended to make appointments with her ahead of time. The therapist will do 1/2 to 1 hour sessions with clients. More info to follow.
The Lumberjack Inn features acres of land to hike , beautiful Spring Creek which flows into the Blackfoot River, and a pond where a paddle boat is available. There is also an actual tree house that the owners occupy and tours are provided of this amazing house. Bring your camera, swimsuit and hiking boots if you wish!
