Griffin Dyeworks 12th Annual Retreat

Join us for two days of dyeing, fiber arts, and creative workshops in the beautiful pine forest outside Lake Arrowhead, CA. Shared cabins, family-friendly location, pool and jacuzzi, all food and lodging fees included!

Classes may each have a materials fee – but you can choose which classes to take and control your schedule and budget!

Bring your family – or not! Many classes are child-friendly (with supervision), or we offer lower “camper only” food+lodging rates for partners and kids who want to enjoy Lake Arrowhead but not take classes with us.

Shared cabins with real beds and bathrooms! We’ll be in touch for your roommate requests.

Teachers welcome! We invite everyone to teach. Teachers receive a discount on the entry fee based on the number of hours scheduled. Formally scheduled classes as well as informal classes (“If anyone wants to learn X, I am available!”) are appreciated.

Here are some photos of Arrowhead Ranch!

Vendors are welcome at the Griffin Dyeworks Retreat! Please contact us at info@griffindyeworks.com to learn more.


What’s included? All fees include six meals and two nights lodging in a shared cabin with real beds and bathrooms, air conditioners, wifi, access to the pool/jacuzzi and other Arrowhead Ranch amenities. Retreat attendees can also sign up for classes. 10am Friday June 24 – 11am Sunday June 26.
