WHO ARE THE WORKSHOPS AND RETREATS FOR?

We welcome foodies, creatives, and entrepreneurs from all walks of life, all ages and nationalities wanting to adventure, learn, connect and meet amazing likeminded people. It is our belief, that there is no field that can't benefit from a working knowledge of creativity, storytelling, and photography. And even though the title of our retreat enterprise is 'Sisterhood Retreats, it doesn't mean that the workshops and retreats are not open to men. Men are absolutely welcome!

I'M A VEGETARIAN/I HAVE A FOOD ALLERGY, ARE THERE RESTRICTED DIET OPTIONS?

Nearly all meals during our workshops and retreats are plantbased. In case they include meat, there will always be vegetarian options also. If you have any food allergies or food sensitivities, we will do our best to accommodate it by making special dishes for you. Just let us know at least 14 days in advance of the workshop.

WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO I NEED TO BRINGF?

If you are attending a photography workshop or retreat, you will need to bring your camera - whatever you normally shoot food with is fine. Some guests come with their iPhone, others with point & shoots, and the majority with DSLRs. It's important that you have a beginning knowledge of how to use your camera. If you have a serious interest in photography, we highly recommend that you come with a DSLR equipped with a fast lens. Bring also your laptop.

DO YOU TEACH PRIVATE LESSONS??

Yes, I do. I run one, two and three day bespoke workshops and one-on-one courses for creatives who want to enhance their skills sets in photography, writing, styling, post-production, business development, social media, cooking, learn how to write a cookbook, improve their workflow or hone in on their dreams. I also offer private mentoring sessions in my studio in Aarhus, Denmark or from times to times in Rome, Paris, London, Tuscany, NYC and a few other major cities. Read more HERE.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A WORKSHOP, AND A RETREAT?

WORKSHOPS are usually 1-3 day learning events in major cities during which Sif teaches creative business development, photography, cookbook creation, styling, healthy cooking, photo editing, and/or social media. Apart from lots of hands-on-training classes and in-depths lessons, workshops also include delicious meals, excursions, and amazing network opportunities. Accommodation is not provided during workshops nor are any meals other than those during class hours.

RETREATS are special, all-inclusive, travel and learning events where you experience the best of two worlds – learning and rejuvenation. It’s the perfect blend between reflecting and recharging, and learning and enhancing your skills sets as well. They tend to take place at a quiet or secluded place in the world – an antique home in the rolling hills with a secret waterfall nearby, a beach house on a beautiful coast or a cabin in the woods with stellar views –where a group of creatives come together for 4-6 days to get out of their daily life routines, revitalize, recharge, and immerse themselves in photography, writing, storytelling, styling, cooking, mindfulness and creative business development. The group stay together at the retreat location, which creates the vibe of a tribe.

DO YOU ACCEPT CANCELLATIONS OR OFFER REFUNDS IN ANY EVENT?

Unfortunately due to the involved logistics & up front costs of the workshops and retreats we have a strict no refund and no cancellation policy regardless of circumstance. If you need to cancel we will do whatever is in our power to help you find a replacement for your spot. If we succeed, you will be refunded in full minus a service charge of $150 but only in the event that a replacement is found. We strongly recommend you to buy travel insurance and to be sure you can make it before you sign up.
