DO I HAVE TO HAVE A CERTAIN SKILL LEVEL?
No skill level required! You can be an ultimate beginner or a pyro master - or anywhere inbetween - and still feel the magic of this wood burning retreat.
CAN I GO TOGETHER WITH A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER?
It's better with friends! We certainly encourage you to bring a friend or family member. Let us know you are coming together and we will do our best to help you lodge in the same room.
DO I NEED TO FIND MY OWN LODGING?
Not at all!
You will get 3 incredible nights with all-inclusive sleeping arrangements.
DO I NEED TO PROVIDE MY OWN FOOD?
We will provide...
- continental breakfasts,
- catered and dine-in lunches,
- beverages like bottled water, coffee, tea, and juice, and
- one group dinner on the final night.
We discovered that our guests appreciate a change of subject after a full day of burning.
You will be responsible for your own dinner on Thursday and Friday, which allows you to take a break from burning and gives you the opportunity to explore Flagstaff and/or enjoy some down time.
WHAT IF I HAVE DIETARY RESTRICTIONS?
While we strive to accomodate dietary restrictions and allergies, we cannot guarantee every meal will fit every diet.
We will have a refrigerator where you can store any food that you may need to bring.
DO I NEED TO PROVIDE MY OWN TRANSPORTATION?

you to share a ride with your fellow retreaters to get yourself to and
from the retreat before, after, and for your own dinners.

This Burn Savvy wood burning retreat is project focused - meaning
we are giving you a rich, hands-on experience with burning a unique
pyrography project that you can't get in other events.
WHAT KIND OF PROJECT WILL WE BE BURNING?
We will be burning a landscape together! There will be options for you to choose from and of course you are welcome to burn your own design if you choose.
You will also get to select your piece from a variety of wood!
