Creative Workshops & Retreats

 

So you've been thinking about teaching a workshop or hosting a creative retreat, but all the planning and logistics are a total buzzkill. Wouldn't it be nice to have someone deal with the detail work so that you can focus on what matter most - actually creating? 

That's where we come in. We'll collaborate with you on picking a destination and designing the workshop structure, manage travel logistics (including accommodations, activities, and meals), and coordinate with participants to collect payments and facilitate all communication.

In short, don’t sweat the small stuff. We got this.

Let's work together! Contact hello@woander.com for more information and pricing on workshops & retreats.

4-day Creative Retreat in Baja California

Todos Santos, Baja California
Todos Santos has been deemed a "pueblo magico" (magical village) by the Mexican department of tourism due to the way it has retained its colonial heritage and authentic Mexican charm. The people that have chosen to visit and live here have deemed it magical because of the beautiful sunsets and the way the mountains stretch to the sea. Here, there are no skyscapers or mega-hotels. Your view of the horizon is only interrupted by scattered cacti or the sight of a whale leaping out of the sea.

Gypsy Canyon Glamping
Gypsy Canyon is a chance to escape, unplug and experience Baja like you've never imagined. Nestled in a cactus grove just ten minutes outside of Todos Santos and an easy walk to beautiful beaches, you can sleep under the stars in luxuriously appointed glamping tents. You'll enjoy breathtaking sunsets, delicious breakfasts and the glow of campfire light just before drifting off to the sounds of waves crashing in the distance.

7-day culinary immersive in Puglia

Puglia
Located in the heel of Italy’s boot, Puglia exhibits the rustic tranquility of the Italian countryside with the Baroque luxury of world-class hotels that are nestled inside 15th-century convents. Despite its cultural richness and architecture, Puglia is still one of the least explored regions of Italy, offering a coastline bathed by two crystal blue seas: the Adriatic and the Ionian. The ancient history that lingers in the crumbling stone trulli, the Baroque churches of Lecce, the majestic fortress Castel del Monte, or the medieval convents surrounded by olive groves enriches Puglia travel beyond your average beach vacation.

Palazzo Ducale Guarini

Contemporary luxury, historic charm and artistic flair in the heart of Galatina...  Here's how to restore a late 18th-century palazzo in the heart of a lovely Baroque town: have fun, put your passion into it and embrace the original character and history of the building. This is what the owner of Palazzo Gorgoni has done! Meticulously, lovingly and luxuriously brought back to life over the last few years, Palazzo Gorgoni charms, delights and pampers in equal measure. The amount of space is only one of the many surprises in store for guests who, even after a week in residence still find themselves chuckling and cooing at the wonder of it all.
