Mind too work-focused to realise your body is freezing/starving/knackered? Then you definitely need a dram...

Uniting lone working, whisky drinking artists often locked inside their own thoughts and studios, this sensory weekend workshop will use whisky as both medium and catalyst to renew your mind-body connection. It will also be an incredible opportunity to gel with like-minded creatives, forming a kick-ass peer group to explore future projects together by way of support and/or collaboration. Because an artist cannot exist as one head alone.

This DIY is for 5-7 selected participants who:

  • value the ‘spiritual’ nature of whisky as an essential part of their creative process
  • regard whisky as an art form within itself
  • find themselves working/drinking alone but who crave the company of other artists
  • don’t drink purely with the aim of getting drunk
  • are sick of taking on multiple personalities to discuss ideas with themselves
  • forget to eat because they’re so focussed on working
  • are prepared to fully commit to the duration and ‘spirit’ of the weekend
  • are willing to be open and honest by way of creating an inclusive and supportive environment
  • are looking to reconnect with and re-examine their creative origins to uncork their creative potential
  • are prepared and eager to take part in group discussion/activity

It is open to all practicing artists from any discipline (including - but not exclusive to - fine art, live art, illustration, music, spoken word, ceramicts, etc...) so long as you're 18+.
