The retreat was part of Nicolas Burrows 'Natives' Project.
The idea was to take artists of different disciplines (illustrators, fine artists, applied artists, writers, musicians, film-makers) who display an interest in and would benefit from site-specific engagement with the natural landscape.
Other artists on the trip were: Sister Arrow, William Edmonds and Supermundane
The days were spent walking, working, singing, talking and cooking, we quickly got into the rhythm of a house with no running water and electricity.
I particularly enjoyed chopping wood and starting the fire for the Georgian range.
One night I chatted to a owl somewhere out in the dark.
I tried to replicate the the call of the owl and the owl answered back a few times.
