Griffin Dyeworks sponsors a 3-day fiber retreat in the Los Angeles area. An exciting fiber adventure that will keep you busy all weekend, you’ll do the crafts you love, meet local and faraway artists, and learn entirely new skills!
When: June 27-29, 2015
Where: Arrowhead Ranch Conference Center, Lake Arrowhead, CA
Arrowhead Ranch has cabins featuring real beds and private bathrooms, and come in different configurations that can accommodate between 2 and 7 people. There’s a large dining hall and plenty of indoor and outdoor space for our classes, and a pool, jacuzzi, hiking trails and more for your downtime! It’s a great location if you want to bring your family along for the weekend – Arrowhead Ranch is located in the natural beauty of the San Bernardino National Forest, just minutes away from Lake Arrowhead.
Cost & Registration
Cost: $350 (shared cabin) if registered before June 10. Anyone who registers June 10 or later cannot be guaranteed lodging or food! There are many local hotels or restaurants, and you can bring in your own food. If we cannot provide food or lodging, the price would be lowered to reflect that.
Day tripper cost (includes classes and food for the day, but no lodging): TBD
Camper cost (no classes)
Adult Camper, 3 Days, No Classes – TBD (9am Friday-2pm Sunday, all meals & lodging, Ranch amenities)
Child Camper 3 Days, No Classes [Ages 3-10] – TBD (9am Friday-2pm Sunday, all meals & lodging, Ranch amenities)
The price still includes ALL food and lodging from Friday afternoon until Sunday afternoon. This year, however, you we won’t be roughing it quite so much – you won’t need to bring your own bedding, rugs, or pop up tents for our outdoor tent city! No canvas tents – the cabins are all well-appointed, clean, and include private bathrooms, tvs, and wireless internet. You can see some photos of the cabins on the Arrowhead Ranch website! This event will truly be a retreat – not a campout!

Teachers & Classes
Teachers are given a discounted entry fee based on the number of hours they are scheduled to teach classes. Have a neat technique you want to share? Want to teach others how to do the craft you do but no one else seems to? ANYONE can teach – it doesn’t have to be Fiber Arts, either! You can submit a class proposal online anytime, and we’ll be in touch before the event.
More at the Retreat
Raffle – Every year we hold a raffle with your donations to fund our Retreat Scholarship program! Please bring any items you think this audience would be interested in to donate.
Freebie/Destash table – Have things to get rid of that may not be worth anything? We have a freebie table so people can pick up supplies, magazines, partially finished projects, fabric scraps – whatever they need! Anything not taken by your fellow retreaters will be donated to a local charity.
Spinning Circle (pictured at top) – Don’t forget your spinning wheel! We sit, spin, & chat during downtime when we’re not taking classes and long into the night. It’s also a great place to try out some different wheels and see what’s out there – everything from an 1800s walking wheel to a repurposed bicycle made into a spinning wheel have been there in the past.
