What you can expect

Itinerary

The activity offers travellers the opportunity to explore and draw in the Breamish Valley, in the north of Northumberland National Park. The valley has a beautiful river, big sky views and a wealth of prehistoric features, including a fine Iron Age Hill Fort at Brough Law, just one of many in the area. The aim for the traveller is to look for the details in the landscape, to take the time to stand and stare and to draw what they see. The activity includes an option for some easy walking up to the hill fort, but the area is diverse enough to meet the needs of people, whatever their ability or fitness level. Each traveller gets a pack of drawing materials to keep; this includes a sketch pad and a set of drawing pencils. Your guide Patrick will look after you and point out the valley's features and wildlife, and Jane, a wildlife artist is there to guide your hand as you capture what you see all around you on your sketchpad. The activity is designed to take place outdoors, whatever the weather, but if we do get driven indoors, we have Ingram Village Hall as a safe haven to ensure the Experience can go ahead. Add in a picnic lunch made up from local produce and you have the perfect day.
