August news…

Welcome to the Cafe Tissardmine news in August…

The men in the desert are bravely bearing the heat and Ramadan whilst I am freezing in melbourne…its good to be back but wish it was warmer…I’m heading back to the desert soon as we open up after the summer break in Mid September and shortly after will welcome 9 artists from all over the world for our first Artist-in-Residence program of the season.

Our art and cultural retreats start in late October, so the most important thing to point out in this bulletin is that the early bird offer on all our retreats ends on August 30 so you may want to seriously consider booking in and save money…just email me
