"Every spring is the only spring -- a perpetual astonishment." -Ellis Peters
Led by Guild resident brewers, bakers and roasters -- Scott Dillman and Nathan Barnard -- this three-day workshop will explore the methods and theory to create homemade beer, sourdough bread and coffee. Visit the event page for workshops costs (especially for locals who may not need on-site lodging) and schedule.
Being hosted by Trinity Lutheran Church in Lynnwood, WA, this is a great opportunity for those on the western side of Washington state to attend a Guild event. We are looking forward to these workshops with Mickey and are excited to be able to offer them. The first, on Friday evening, is a free lecture on the life and legacy of Dorothy Day. On Saturday, Mickey will help you "shape up your prayers with circles and squares" and explore the ways in which creativity can help lead us into a space of meditation. Spots are still open for this great workshop: register online or by contacting us in the office.
Join us as we prepare the Guild campus for summer and get the garden started for growing. Work weekends are free of charge (including meals and lodging) in exchange for your volunteered time and energy...and always a great time! If you would like to participate, just contact us and we'll make sure we have room for you.
Whether you are a complete beginner or an advanced artist, our Summer Program provides you with the opportunity to carry out your exploration of art and faith in a supportive, non-competitive environment. The Guild community of instructors, guests and staff is nationally and internationally diverse, encouraging a week of conversation, creativity and blessing. Spots are already filling up for our summer classes (which can be viewed here). Register online or contact us at the office in order to secure your spot! If you've never participated in our summer program or visited the Guild, here are some responses from those who have.
Would you like to participate in our summer program but funds are a bit tight this year? We have full-time and part-time volunteer programs available, which are great ways for you to still have the opportunity of experiencing the community and creativity of a Grünewald summer. For more information visit our volunteer page (and yes, it really is as fun as it looks!). If you have any questions or are possibly interested in volunteering, feel free to contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Katy Erickson, by phone or via e-mail (katy[at]grunewaldguild[dot]com).
We are already booking reservations for retreat space for Fall 2012. We are an affordable option for group, church and organizational retreats. Our location in central Washington makes us far enough away (but not too far) for your retreat, and our ability to provide meal survice cuts down on the amount of planning you need to do in order to make your retreat or getaway a successful one. If you would like to discuss holding a retreat with us in the fall, give Dan a call in the office or contact him via e-mail (dan[at]grunewaldguild[dot]com). We look forward to hearing from you!
