  • Description


    Artist's creative country home, (sometimes art workshop venue) and studio in the picturesque Scottish Borders.
    Help is required with general housekeeping, gardening, garden and house maintenance and with 4 sweet dogs who like walking and cuddles. There is generally some art related project on the go. Currently that involves a mosaic garden project for which artist host will teach and give instruction as to how. This, therefore is ideally suited to self motivated, animal loving creatives or gardeners who have a passion and interest in contributing to making an interesting and beautiful space.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    For Workawayers wishing to follow a creative path this will offer them the opportunity to work and learn alongside an experienced professional artist at times if this is something you are keen to do. Sharing the cooking of meals and eating supper together offers the opportunity to practise English to foreign workawayers.

    Along with help within the house, gardening and helping with 4 dogs, there will generally be some sort of art related project or garden project happening. This is best suited to animal lovers, keen walkers, lovers of the outdoors and a quieter life and to creatives who would enjoy working on creative garden projects which currently is mosaic work for which I will teach how to do. If you have ever visited the Gaudi Museum, think of the mosaic benches and walls. Depending on skills help needed is animal care, general household cleaning, maintenance and garden work. As a studio build is due to happen soon there may be some work related to this in way of ground clearing and preparation. The daily 5 hours work loosely breaks down to 2 hours dog walking, 1 hour house cleaning, 1 hour gardening and 1 hour on creative project. This is flexible and for those who are passionate about art and creativity may choose to spend more of their own time in the studio.
