A few weeks ago we said goodbye to the seven wonderful guests who came on our first ever Outlander-inspired Art Experience. What can I say- we had such a great time! Travelling with our sketchbooks signed by no other than Jamie (AKA Sam Heughan) himself, we visited many of the Outlander filming locations and got artistic guidance and lots of fascinating stories from our fantastic artist guide Nicky Sanderson.
At Culross Palace Garden we enjoyed a private herbalist workshop with herbalist Anna Canning, who also taught us how to make our own herbal balms and potions, and at Highland Print Studio in Inverness we learned the ancient drypoint printmaking technique with guidance from artist Jan Baxandall. All this and the shared love of learning and spirit of camaraderie made made it a truly amazing trip!
We held back on opening next year’s tour for bookings until we had the feedback from our “guinea pigs” (as they called themselves ;)). The 2020 Outlander Art Experience will run from 28 June to 9 July 2020 (12-days). You can find the details here . The itinerary is very similar to this year’s, but listening to guest feedback we’ve built in a free full day in the middle and one studio day at the end of the tour.
