The Lake Superior Design Retreat is an annual, winter weekend extravaganza. 2021 will be virtual, but don’t let that deter you from attending. Plan to attend and embrace the creative opportunities this unusual time has presented us on February 26–27, 2021. Four creative design professionals will join us to explore the edges of design as they share their passion for their art and/or craft and discuss their creative stories.

Share your Retreat stories, insights, and experience with hashtag #LSDR33 on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!

Arbor Wood Co. produces thermally modified wood for a variety of outdoor and indoor applications. This domestically-sourced and sustainably harvested wood undergoes a natural modification process to improve resistance to rot and decay as well as dimensional stability. The result is a high-quality, performance-driven material which sustains the natural beauty and design element of wood.
