Leaning into the Landscape, a one week trans-disciplinary masterclass.

How to be part of evolution and be creative and efficient through nature.

By Maria Blaisse, Miek Zwamborn and Rutger Emmelkamp

Costs: £ 885

Venue: Isle of Erraid

Leaning into the Landscape brings participants from different fields and continents together on the remote tidal island of Erraid on the west coast of Scotland. The open and transdisciplinary approach in this intensive masterclass will challenge participants to unlearn and re-wild by immersing oneself into this rugged coastal land. 

We invite you to explore together the ingenuity of natural systems. Starting from scratch a focused process will lead into forms, sounds, and movements that take you to your very own expression inspired by volcanic rock formations, peatland, Celtic rainforest and the sea with its flora and fauna living in and on it.

During the week, we will be walking the island, sail the shoreline, encounter ancient oaks, collaborate with seaweed, lichen and granite, sink into peat, eat and cook from the shore. Everybody will go home with many new insights and ways of working. Through absorption, improvising and making you will experience the inexhaustible resource of land and ocean.
