Warbler’s Roost Retreats

Warbler’s Roost is now offering weekend and week-long retreats that include workshops, accommodation and breakfast for select dates:

Soundscape Retreat Residencies:

World renown Sound Artist Darren Copeland has created a set of workshops that will include recording the outdoor environs at Warbler’s Roost and using the recordings to create soundscape works and/or sound art.

Geared towards the budding sound artist, the visual and media artist exploring sound, and nature enthusiasts, as well as those with a general interest in sound, these workshops will include listening exercises and will teach basic recording, editing, processing and mixing practices.

For more information, go to our Soundscape Retreats page.

Two different options are available at present, a weekend version and a week-long version. There are a limited number of spots available for each retreat and the deadline to register is July 10, 2015.

Option 1
One-week Soundscape Retreat which includes accommodation for 7 nights, 7 x 2-hour daily workshops and a continental breakfast served each morning.  Access to a kitchen is available 24/7 so that participants can prepare their other meals. We are currently offering two different weeks to choose from: July 24 – 31 & Aug 31 – Sept 7

Option 2
Weekend Soundscape Retreat which includes accommodation for 2 nights, 2 x 3-hour daily workshops and a continental breakfast served each morning.

Payments
A deposit of 50% of the residency retreat fee is required to confirm your registration. Balance is due on the day of your arrival. We accept VISA and MasterCard, or cash.

Once a Warbler’s Roost staff member has confirmed that your chosen date is available, he/she will follow up with a phone call in order to arrange credit card payment.

Cancellation policy:
As only a limited number of spots are available, Warbler’s Roost has a strict cancellation policy. The 50% deposit is non-refundable. However, should the artist wish to change their dates to another retreat week within the same calendar year and if the new dates are available, the deposit can be used for a revised retreat period.

Stay tuned for more retreat options in the near future.
