What will be the program like?
Every day we will start with an energizing yoga class in the beautiful Yoga ground followed by a delicious and healthy breakfast.
During the sculpting workshop, you will find a nice assortment of soapstone at the studio. You should take your time when choosing your stone. It is a very emotional moment and fundamental for the following sculpting process itself. During the duration of the workshop you will enter in a deep interaction with “your” stone. The combination of observing, perceiving and creating with the use of your own hands will lead you to a great emotional satisfaction. The working process includes various techniques of sculpting, sawing, shaping, grinding and polishing.
Food & wine play are part of our culture and play an important role on this retreat. You will enjoy 3 daily meals always prepared with local, fresh and seasonal ingredients. On every dinner, we will present a different natural wine sourced by small local producers.
Meet the artist: Peggy Berghaeuser-Rottler
Peggy was born in Germany and lived a bit all over the world. When she discovered Alentejo, she immediately fell in love with this region. She has her own art studio in a beautiful villa surrounded by vineyards where the workshops will take place. She has run numerous workshops and exhibitions in Germany, Portugal, Rwanda, and the Antilles. Her other passion is winemaking and she personally curates her own vineyards and produces her own wine.
We love her sense of humor and wittiness.
