“I have walked out of the body and into the mountain.” Nan Shepherd
Join visual artists Kim Rebecca and Hana Wilde for an immersive weekend of artistic exploration, inspired by Nan Shepherd’s book The Living Mountain.
Over the weekend, Kim and Hana will lead indoor and outdoor activities to take us ‘into’ the landscape. Through sculpture, mark-making and printmaking, we will discover the potential in natural materials, colours, tools and processes.
Through mini workshops, Kim and Hana will introduce a range of techniques to observe and record our environment. Activities will include exploration through walking and meditation, collective art-making, map-making and more. Our shared space will become a hub for discussion, drawing, and reading, with tuition and support on hand as required.
No prior artistic experience is required to attend the course. The weekend will provide a supportive environment in which to play, create, and explore, individually and collectively.
ACCOMMODATION AND CATERING
The course takes place in the beautiful surroundings of Drumsyniebeg Farm, hidden in the Argyll hills. With a sauna, open living space and shared kitchen, the farm is the perfect setting to explore your own creativity. Home cooked meals will be provided,
The course fee includes all food, accommodation and drawing materials. We will ask everyone to assist us with one cooking and one washing-up session. We can provide transport from the Rest and Be Thankful car park (easily accessible by coach) to Drumsyniebeg Farm.
