Host your next retreat at the EncaustiCastle!

There’s this place….














It’s an old place, and it’s a city place









and it’s a magical, alive, spirited place.


People come to this place,

from far and near,
and are changed.








And change the place.

It grows lighter,
as if the turret so high reaching, reaches even higher,
bold and brilliant.
This place comes alive;
and brings to life.


This place,
this old place, this city place,
this brilliant, bright, art, grace place,
is here.

Inside and out,

studios, rooms, gathering spaces-
it is here
for you.
See what it takes to make your unique magic,
with your unique group,
shine too~
