I am a ceramic artist. My home is right on the sea in a stunning bay on the southwest corner of Brač, Croatia. Surrounded by pine forest, peaceful, only a few minutes from the gorgeous village of Milna. I have a small ceramic studio on my property. My home is also a cat sanctuary and I currently care for 16 cats.
DIY and building projects
Workawayers can learn about the traditional way of life on this Croatian island. The staples of olive oil and wine are still produced in the traditional way and I can introduce them to local makers. I can teach some Croatian language basics so workawayers can interact with the locals in my community. I am involved with an animal rescue charity and help with that would be welcome if they are interested. I can also teach some pottery.
I need help with my garden. Weeding, planting, helping to set up a watering system. I want help with building a shelter for my cats. Also cat sitting so I can get away for a few nights.
Top floor studio apartment with its own entrance, kitchen and bathroom, newly renovated, with a balcony overlooking the sea. Choice of single bed or inflatable double bed. Use of my scooter and rubber dinghy also possible. Workawayers will be responsible for their own food. I have direct access to the sea so fishing is possible, and there is a large outdoor stone oven for barbeques.
Workawayers are free to use my 50cc Piaggio scooter to explore the island. There are regular ferries to Split. Brač is full of beautiful secluded bays, gorgeous historical towns, olive groves, vineyards, hiking, cycle routes. I mostly like to keep to myself so this position would suit an individual or couple who are quiet and self sufficient.
