Tracey Spurgin, Holly Gage & Chef, Chris Gage teamed up once again to organise the 2nd Midsummer's Dream Metal Clay Retreat at Tracey's Craftworx Studio in East Yorkshire, UK. "The inaugural 2014 event was such a success that we just had to get back together to do it all again in 2015".
The 2015 event retained the Midsummer's Dream theme, focusing on the Viking heritage of the East Yorkshire region. The Vikings played such an important role in the development of East Yorkshire traditions and history. And being from Nordic origins, this exciting Viking theme fitted right in with the original ethos of the Midsummer’s Dream Retreat.
The students were inspired by the beauty, history & culture of the East Yorkshire countryside & towns. They learnt new & inspiring techniques from two of the world's premier metal clay artists and enjoyed fine food from Christopher Gage, our personal chef (Holly’s husband) who served on-site gourmet lunches & dinners. His meals were also inspired by our Midsummer's Dream theme.
This was a week packed full of inspiring workshops, delivered by both Holly & Tracey along with a cultural and inspirational trip to York to inspire the students with their Retreat projects.
It was more than just another masterclass. There were goodies, entertainment and more surprises for the students. The Retreat proved to be one of the events of the year. Click here to read a review of the 2014 Retreat and the plans for 2015
