I am living in a large house just outside a village near Ludlow, Shropshire. The house has its origins from the 11th century. The gardens are very large and are surrounded by fields. A river is at the bottom of the garden. This workaway opportunity would suit someone who enjoys being in the country away from the inner cities.
The workaway help will vary but involve either helping the gardener in the gardens and fields or if you feel able assisting with the care of my mother. This would be discussed fully prior to coming.
I have moved back to UK to help with the care of my mother and haven a live in carer. As the live in carer requires breaks away each month there is an oportunity for me to pay you for this week. Also any additional work associated with helping the carer will be paid over and above your workaway guidelines.
There is ample space in the house for you to have privicy if required or join in also. There is a separate mini gym area which is also an artist studio for guests or workawayers. There is also a music room with guitars and a decent electronic piano with weighted keys.
Activities that i do that may be of interest are tai chi, chi kung, wushu, sanda, karate. Also film and music.
Also 3D animation and film editing (adobe c.c), improving adobe c.c and animation for current and future indie film projects.
Also paint but not for a while , (room for you to paint for sure)
It is important that you are comfortable with and use to doing housework such as cooking (alternately) and cleaning before applying. Help could also include assisting with helping on the land (gardening, riverside maintenance (cutting weeds back), sanding wood, varnishing, painting. Please read the workaway guidelines regarding cooking and cleaning shared responsibilities.
