Shimmering sea

Enjoy capturing the patterns in those waves. Let pastels and watercolours guide you through shimmering shades of turquoise, blues and greens, as tidal currents ebb and flow. Explore shoreline journeys, the opaque and iridescent colours of shells bleached by the golden sun’s rays, the colours of the tideline across sandy shores. 

Our ‘How Do You See the Sea?’ Course will guide you on an exciting journey of mindfulness, relaxation and discovery, using a variety of mixed media, as you enjoy the creative process. Find your inner voice, discover, explore and connect with the ocean’s colours and patterns, capturing stories of magical Islay beach time and translating it into art.

Great hosts and great views nearby! As a lone traveler and someone who had taken up a last minute trip to Islay, the hosts – Donald and Rosemary Fletcher were a delightful company. They made me feel at home and even provided detailed information to visit nearby attractions including a map. Since I was keen to visit the Finlaggen ruins, and it was almost getting dark, Donald was kind enough to give me a lift one way to the historical site and also made sure that I had a torch light with me on my way back. We had a great Indian dinner with Donald and Rosemary always ready to entertain with the stories on the farm and beyond. Even though I was staying over for just a night, I was touched by the hospitality of the Fletchers. I would highly recommend anyone wishing to have a terrific islander experience to go have a stay at the Persabus farm! It is located a wee walk from the Port Askaig and located a few minutes’ walk from the Finlaggen ruins as well. Rosemary also runs a pottery craft workshop with fabulous art works too. Moreover, if you are just looking for a good humored stay, you won’t be disappointed either.
