Retreat the northern hemisphere winter and be inspired by the natural beauty and cultural diversity here at the coast in South Africa. It is our summer, and the perfect climate! It is easy to fly in to our little East London airport.

Coming solo, or with a partner or family?  We have a solo opportunity from 5 January for a month to join other artists: a ceramicist from Sweden and a writer on happiness from Montreal. Stay a month or more for R440/day, that is an incredible £23 a day for own en-suite room, kitchen, and art space set up to suit your needs! We even do your laundry!

From 29 January there is space for a family in our 2-bedroom unit for two months. From 5 April join a ceramic artist from France and her family. Their 10yr old will join our Waldorf classes for 6 weeks. Ask what ages and interests you and your partner/children. We understand that if the artist wants to make art then the family must also have a great experience!

From Mid- July a painter from the US is bringing her teen children for a month to join mine. We have great plans already to have them in nature so they will forget their phones! Come join us! info@driftwoodstudios.co.za or for a quicker response whatsapp Claire +27 834792750.
