Focus on Fiber Florida Style

There is usually a limit of 12-20 students per class so that everyone has ample time with the instructors. The classes have been spaced throughout the retreat so that participants can attend more than one program if desired. Classes are from 9 AM to 4 PM unless otherwise decided by instructor and attendees.


Resident students may arrive on day before class after 1 PM to set up their rooms and after dinner they can put supplies in class space. They depart either after class on the last day or vacate their rooms the next morning by 10 AM. Supper will be available on the first evening and breakfast on the last morning.

Commuters arrive on the morning of their class and depart after dinner on the last day of their class.

Class Fees

Commuters packages Includes class, 8 AM - 10 PM access to the studio space and plus breakfast, lunch and dinner. This is non-negotiable whether or not student eats on campus. Only Exception is the Bobbi Baugh special drawing program which provides economy options for meals.

Workshop Housing Includes a private room, all meals and 24 hour access to the studio space. When ordering housing, consider if you want to arrive after 1 pm the day before class and leave the last day of class after class or stay the night and leave before 1 pm on that day.
