If you weren’t able to join us here in Port Townsend for our first ever Nunn Design Art Retreat, you were missed! Here is a photo of the great group of woman that gathered together to have their creativity inspired and nurtured.

The Art Retreat started on Thursday night at the Nunn Design office and warehouse. Everyone had the opportunity to connect with each other in person (they’d already been chatting it up in a Facebook Group for months prior), enjoy some snacks and to explore the Nunn Design warehouse.

After some gabbing, the class project was unveiled. In the class we would be focusing on multiple techniques, but the theme of the bracelet could be individually altered to fit each person’s personality and taste. Off to the “table of decisions” everyone headed to start going through a check-list of decisions that they would need to make in order to design their bracelet just the way they wanted it.


And here is what came from 2 days of play!

    Everyone really did a great job on their bracelets. So good to see that charm bracelets with lots of charms are still “In”. I love charm bracelets, the look and the fun sound they make when you move your arm. TFS!
