We are a family-run venue for artistic residencies and courses in the forests close to the Baltic sea. We welcome both small groups and individuals. Our vision is of a thriving, creative local community where contemporary art practice has a natural place. We are always looking for  new collaborations with institutions, organisations and other local producers of culture.

We are now making plans and taking bookings for the season June – September 2021. During the cold months we also rent out desk space and accommodation to artists and writers seeking a peaceful and quiet retreat close to nature. As long as there are restrictions because of the pandemic, we do not organise any artist talks or other public events.

Since 2014, we have been slowly converting an old barn into three beautiful studio spaces, with the help and enthusiasm of many volunteers. Follow our story on Instagram and Facebook!
