Workshops & Retreats
Let the beautiful Superior shore inspire you.

Workshops and Retreats

The rugged Lake Superior coastline near Wawa, Ont., has provided inspiration for generations of artists, writers and musicians, including Group of Seven painter A.Y. Jackson and legendary concert pianist Glenn Gould. We keep the tradition alive, offering photography, painting and yoga workshops, as well as house concerts throughout the spring, summer and fall. Here’s a sample of our programs:
