Whether driving or flying, if your schedule permits, we highly recommend adding a day or two to the beginning and end of your trip. We promise that you'll be glad that you did, as you'll be less rushed and more inclined to enjoy all that there is to see in The Sandhills and the surrounding area.
Who will be teaching and what classes will be offered?
For this ReMe Presents... Experience, Jodi Ohl will be teaching for three full days in the studio. Jodi's partner in ReMe Retreats, Jean Skipper, will also be on hand to help you throughout the weekend. To learn a bit more about Jodi and Jean, please use the tabs above or click on their names.
Will there be time at ReMe Presents... for Rest and Relaxation?
Absolutely! We've worked hard to ensure a balanced mix of activities and relaxation for our guests. Classes will be broken into manageable segments with breaks between each. You'll also find several optional activities in our itinerary. While we'd love for you to participate with us, if a nap or a bit of solo exploring is calling, we'll completely understand.
How many guests will be in attendance?
There will be a maximum of twenty guests at ReMe Presents... Absolultely Astract. By hosting this ReMe Retreat in our very own studios, we’re able to increase availability while still maintaining the friendly intimate environment that you’ve grown to expect and love with ReMe Retreats.
With such limited availability, and given our existing waiting list, we expect a full house. Reservations will be accepted as they are received, and we encourage you to claim your space early.

What can I expect in the classroom, and will I need to bring class supplies?
You’re going to love our classes! We’ll provide you with your own creative space for the duration of your visit. Our cheery classroom at Creative Studios NC will serve as the home for our classes for the week, and we’ll have plenty of room to spread out and create. Once you settle into your workspace there, you won’t need to pack, unpack, or relocate for the remainder of our time together. The only things that we'll ask you to bring are your brushes, your brayer, and any of your favorites that you just can't live without. We’ll have plenty of tools and supplies to share too. Please visit our Absolutely Abstract Registration Page by clicking here for more specific details.
Can you accommodate meals for a vegetarian?
Absolutely! Jean's a vegetarian, so you'll be in good company.
Can you accommodate my gluten free diet?
Yes we can! If you'll discuss your preferences with us, we'll be happy to provide you with gluten free options.
Can you accommodate my food allergy?
Please understand that your health and well being are our primary concerns. While we aren't able to offer meal plans for specific food allergies. If you'd like to discuss your particular situation, please contact us ReMe@ReMeRetreats.com .
Is there anything else?
Surprises are good, and we have oodles of them in store for you! Mum’s the word for now, and in the meantime, we hope that you enjoy every minute of the anticipation.
Will additional ReMe Experiences be held in other locations?
Possibly. Our long term dream for ReMe is one of managed growth in North Carolina. While we're actively seeking opportunities that will allow us to accommodate additional guests, we'll also strive to preserve the intimate nature of each event.
Our history was built on our all inclusive ReMe Retreats, and they remain the flagship of our offerings.
In 2017, we'll also be adding "ReMe Presents..."., and our first will be Absolutely Abstracts with Jodi Ohl. Think of these mini-retreats as an intensive with your favorite instructor. Slightly less inclusive than our retreats, these ReMe Experiences will provide you with three days in the classroom, most supplies, breakfast, lunch, and beverages during the day, and a few of the extra surprises for which we've become known.
