When's the latest I can book?

Can I attend more than one workshop over the weekend?

Unfortunately no, you will need to select one class for the entire time as you will be creating amazing works and your journey will be an intensive learning experience.

What accommodation is included?

The included accommodation is at The Vine Motel & Cottages Stanthorpe.

The Vines is a 3.5 star accommodation provider in the heart of Stanthorpe. A comfortable, family owned motel, The Vines is surrounded by beautiful gardens and is a short stroll from the gorgeous Quart Pot Creek, the award winning Anna’s Italian Restaurant and the world famous Viscosity cocktail bar.

 

What does twin share mean?

Twin share is when two adults are sharing a room. You may request whom you’d like to share a room with just let us know when you book.

There is a private room upgrade option (for an additional charge), which means you will not need to share your room.

Who can attend the Autumn Retreat?

I'd like to bring my significant other, how should I book?

Fantastic! You’ll have a great time.

You can either book two all inclusive workshop registrations or you can book two experience only registrations and use the Granite Belt Wine Country website to book your own accommodation.

Do I need any experience to book into the workshops?

No experience needed! Our tutors are happy to teach anyone with a genuine interest in the topic.
