  • Description

    Description

    Hi I’m Chris, a retired Sydney Firefighter who has studied Sculpture and photography at the National art school in Sydney and continue to practice Art and pass on my knowledge to others .I’m building an off grid art space/ bush meditation retreat on my 15 hectare property by the river in Pyramul, western NSW utilising recycled materials as much as possible. I have been a vegetarian and regular meditator for the past 25 years with an interest in buddhism. I have travelled extensively and regularly practiced yoga. I also have a house in the blue mountains where I spend time gardening and regularly visit the Buddhist meditation centre in Katoomba.

    I’m looking for creative people to help build an art studio/meditation space and bush retreat for artists and anyone wishing to experience the Australian wilderness .No specific skills are required but a willingness to help with basic manual labour. I also need help with gardening and bush regeneration. I’m utilising recycled building materials wherever possible and need help organising material and cleaning and preparing building site. I am also restoring some old retro caravans to be used as accommodation on the property. I have also been restoring my liveaboard yacht in Sydney.
