a pairing of art and fine food

Our retreats are a unique combination of Metal Clay Jewelry workshops lead by Holly Gage, and artfully prepared meals by husband Christopher Gage. We've paired the perfect blend for feeding your artistic soul, as well as your artistic palate. If you'd like to attend a retreat open to the public, please see our Workshops Page.

Each Workshop is intended to: stimulate the artist within; explore new artistic styles; encourage metal clay and jewelry students to take a new creativity leap; develop design, technical, and craftsman skills; all the while making beautiful and innovative jewelry you didn’t know you could create. The jewelry classes are suitable for beginner through advanced, as individual attention is paid to each student throughout the workshop.

Combining fine food and fine art makes for the ultimate experience. Cuisine prepared with the most fresh, local, in-season ingredients, and Christopher's philosophy of 'garden-to-table,' gives the students and instructor an opportunity to connect with each other on a personal level. There is nothing like conversation with old friends and new over the unforgettable aromas and  flavors brought together in an artful fashion.

Our Metal Clay Retreats are designed and personalized for your needs. We work with you to select the workshops and the type of meals, (and any add-ons), which best fit your group.
