Scotland excites your senses and often brings out a creative side that perhaps you did not know existed. Luckily, Hello Scotland is on hand to make sure any artistic incentive guests have the opportunity to hone their creative skills when here in Scotland. Wild at Art is an activity that introduces the incentive group to talented and carefully selected artists who will lead arts and crafts workshops depending on individual interests.
The ever-changing scenery of Scotland encourages guests to try their hands at painting, drawing, stone carving/sculpture, textile weaving (tartan) or silversmithing and jewellery making. Hello Scotland can even organise the ladies of the group to meet a Milner (hat maker) so they can make a hat for that evening’s gala dinner!
Wild at Art is an activity that goes off the beaten track to some of Scotland’s most picturesque areas and guests really feel like they get involved with the land. Imagine combing a secluded sandy beach to collect pebbles and driftwood to use for jewellery or a picture frame, stopping at a private castle for afternoon tea, visiting a gallery to meet a local artist before heading for an evening of live acoustic music in a cosy pub…..Best of all, guests have a truly unique memento of Scotland to take home with them.
Hello Scotland’s ‘artist in crime’ is Ellen Colingsworth who has over the years has built relationships with a variety of Scottish artists, together with sourcing artists’ studios and venues to make sure incentive guests have amazing memories of their time in Scotland. Thanks also to Joanna Kessel for the images of the work in action.
