creative retreats that invite your spirit to roam
Run away to a place where Art, Spirit, Nature and Rest are found. Get lost in the wonder and joy of a self-nurturing, creative escape. Connect with like-minded souls in a group art or creative writing retreat or take yourself on a Solo Wandering – your own private, mini retreat experience – alone or with a few others. Make time away from it all to let your creative spirit linger longer, your whims wander wildly across the page and your head take a back seat to your heart – all in a welcoming, affirming, safe and supportive space in Durham, NC, as well as at other area retreat centers.

“Thank you so much for curating such a wonderful, restful, and creative experience! I had such a nourishing, meditative time at my solo wandering – honestly I can’t think of anything that could have been improved upon. It far exceeded my expectations – from the detailed/helpful instructions, to the range of art supplies.”
~ Solo Wanderer
Hi! I’m Claudia.
My current favorite quote is:
“There are things you can’t reach. But you can reach out to them, and all day long. The wind, the bird flying away. The idea of God. And it can keep you as busy as anything else, and happier.”
~ Mary Oliver
Claudia Fulshaw leads hands-on, exploratory, retreats for artists and non-artists alike at The Stable – an amazingly cool, barn-like structure tucked away between Durham and Hillsborough, North Carolina as well as at other locations, personal residences, art councils and schools, churches and retreat centers. Offering fun, unique and inspiring art and writing projects, Claudia lets loose her joyful and infectious “art spirit” while sharing a warm, natural and personal connection with each participant. She will safely lead you on an adventure of surprise and discovery into the realms of Art, Spirit, Nature and Rest.
