A GAELIC ODYSSEY - myths and legends on the Wild Atlantic Way

WITH SUSAN BURNSTINE

31st OCT - 6th NOV 2022 - 6 nights - 1 place available
“Ireland, it’s the one place on earth that heaven has kissed with melody, mirth, and meadow and mist.”-
Irish Blessing

 

Connemara is a place the Irish love to visit, but it’s still largely undiscovered by the massing throngs of tourists. It is here, in this land of myth and legend - of pounding waves, salty winds and wide racing skies - that we have chosen to base our highly anticipated collaboration with multi award winning, fine art photographer, Susan Burnstine.

To say we are excited about this union is an understatement. We have been working remotely with Susan for some time and we share many of the same clients. Although we approach things slightly differently, many of our core beliefs are rooted in the same principles. We both embrace serendipity and unpredictability. Therefore we are hoping that our respective energies will dovetail well and provide the group with an immersive learning experience.

 

THIS IS A CREATIVE GROWTH WORKSHOP - more info under the Creative Growth tab

Led by Doug and Valda, with Susan Burnstine

 

FURTHER DETAILS CAN BE SEEN IN OUR ONLINE PRESENTATION

 
Bohemian, artistic, and genuinely friendly, Connemara is famed for its brightly coloured houses, its hardware pubs (where you can buy a pint and some wellies) and its incredible history.
Artists, musicians and writers come to live, eat and breathe this authentic culture: real food, real talk, real stories ....... a land of mystery and imagination. A place to let our hearts sing and our ideas flow.

 

It is a region of awe-inspiring, unspoilt, and natural beauty. A patchwork of lakes, mountains, historic buildings and windswept bogs.
 
The colourful villages of Connemara will stretch out before us - hidden gems just waiting to be explored.
 
Undoubtedly a place of contrasts, colours, wilderness and warm welcomes - the diversity of the landscape and the people who welcome us will ensure it is a trip to remember.
 
This is a Creative Growth tour so  significant amount of the time spent will be classroom based. You can read more about this type of workshop here
