Bondi Resort Blog

Come on into our Blog for a look at the wonderful world we've got to share! With over 240 hectares (600 acres) of wilderness woodlands surrounding the resort, just ten minutes from Algonquin Park, we feature over 400 metres (1200’) of waterfront and beach; boat rentals; summer hiking trails winding through fields and woods; 20 km. of groomed cross country ski trails and snowshoeing in winter; access to nearby snowmobile trails for sledders, and a toboggan hill for the young at heart.

Get your Art On. Ice. Snow. Melt. Thaw.

 What a wonderful surprise arrived in my inbox this week.

Peter Buwalda, of Buwalda Studio is offering a series of winter workshops.

These will help you release your inner artist.  Or refresh it.  Or kick start it...  Or simply enhance it.

Whatever.  If you have ever longed to dabble with art, or if you are an experienced and accomplished artist, here's a wonderful wonderful way to spend a day --  snowshoeing the winter woods in the morning with Peter and your camera and sketch pad, then back into the cozy indoors and a cuppa... and a light lunch.

The first workshop focuses on the art of ice.

The second focuses on line, form and shadow.

The third takes on  line, motion and colour

And the fourth, for which hopefully snowshoes will not be required, but waterproof boots might be advised, looks at mark-making.

Bring your own favoured materials, or Buwalda Studio can supply you.

While the first one is set to roll out January 24th, we're posting all four of the courses here for you.  It is a steal of a deal, at $50 each of all four for just $100.00.

This would incorporate beautifully into a winter getaway weekend, a Gals' Getaway, for example, where you'd have a day on our ski trails, two great evenings together by our fireplace, and a day out with Peter in the studio.

Something to consider.
