Create Your Own Art Escape

…and discover new possibilities

Pocosin is committed to supporting the arts, environment, and community; and to this end we strive to help others do the same.

We can help you, your organization, or your art guild to create your own event, art retreat, or team building conference. Pocosin has lodging, art studios, multipurpose rooms, and presentation spaces available for use. The Studios also contain lodging for up to 34 guests, at max occupancy.

Are you part of a metals guild that would like to work together in the same studio but lack the resources and space? Pocosin can provide a fully equipped studio for up to 12 metal smiths and jewelers.

Does your Clay Club need a chance to get away from the daily grind and have a weekend away? Pocosin’s clay studio has wheels for 12 potters, electric kilns, and a full range of hand building tools and equipment.

Is your organization seeking a place for staff retreats and meetings? Pocosin’s Riverside Studio’s can be set up in many formats to fit your needs, with several spaces that can be used for breakout sessions, presentations, and large group meetings.slider 5
