I live in the Lake District 3miles from the town of Kendal, a bus journey away from stunning hill walks and incredible views of the mountains and lakes.
My business is in community arts, which involves different types of art projects and working with the community in the following areas. Celebration, working at Festivals and creating Carnivals structures to take part in our local Carnival. Education, working in local Schools and colleges. Well Being where I work in groups with those affected by Cancer, Alziehmers, Specail Needs, Mental Health issues, Homelessness and Anxiety ect.
As I work with groups of vulnerable people this workaway is not suitable for those who are on here to learn or improve their English Language. A good level of English is required as is self motivation, initiative and life experience. Experience in the arts is preferred unless you wish to be more based in the healthy living at home side of things. I am interested in vegan and vegetarian cooking, healthy living options and yoga but I’m often too busy to enjoy these things as I’d like to. I always wish for a positive exchange and that we enjoy learning from one another.
Genuine workaways only! We are not a stepping stone for you to move to the Lake District or to Britain from another Country. We can’t accommodate dogs as we’re surrounded by sheep and have 3 cats who live here.
As it’s now spring my current priority is spring cleaning my home & studio. I also have a priority to sort out some good marketing through social media for my business.
