For years I have given workshops at venues around Perth. This always entails loading the car, driving an hour or more to the venue, unloading, setting up, doing the workshop, loading the car, driving home, unloading and packing away all the stuff. In this workshop the students came to me. This course was for two days so they stayed overnight and we 'played' well into the evening after dinner. It was good not to have all that handling of equipment and materials. My students enjoyed 'their retreat'. It was 'treat' for them they said after organizing their families to come away and play for a couple of days. They will be back to do the next Certificate soon.
