The Enclave 

24th to 30th November 2024
Watercolour  Retreat at The Enclave, Lutruwita/Tasmania

Watercolour Retreat with Cheryl Bruce

This all inclusive art retreat gives us a great opportunity to explore this small town from the 100 year old fully renovated property in the small town of Winnaleah.  We will paint primarily in the studio space, as well as some sketching adventures to the Bay of Fires, Ringarooma River, and Mirror Lake.

Led by accomplished artist Cheryl Bruce, this small group workshop invites participants to delve into a variety of subject matter in order to cover a really wide range of watercolour techniques.


All levels of experience are welcome to join this workshop. Whether you're a seasoned watercolourist or more new to the medium, this workshop offers a nurturing environment to hone your craft.  Join us for a week of inspiration, creativity, and camaraderie.
