  • Description

    We are Rosy and Henry, a mature couple currently on sabbatical from our regular work as teacher and artist based in Edinburgh. We are passionate about the arts and until recently, we managed an arts and well-being studio where art and basket making were taught, music, drama, dance rehearsals and events took place and Pilates and yoga were practised. Henry plays mbira and we both love West African percussion, drumming and dance. We are fast walkers, keen cyclists, happy gardeners, enthusiastic vegetarian/vegan cooks, and novice yogis. In recent years, we have hosted many workawayers, been active workawayers ourselves and have enjoyed many wonderful cultural exchanges. Now, we are ready for new challenges and adventures and eager to travel again. As we are both creative, practical and have a lifetime's worth of various skills, we can turn our hands to most tasks. Since we are keen to improve our Italian, Italy would be our destination of choice. However, we would consider other locations depending on the experiences and opportunities these would provide.
