for an overview and check KIRA.)
Number of participants: Six per workshop
Workshop Content: This is an artist residency,
a time and opportunity for creative self-exploration.
Participants will meet Freeman at four o’clock Sunday
afternoon on the commodious veranda of the KIRA residence to
discuss the gardens, the town, workshop content, hopes and ideas
for personal projects, and the week together, then share dinner
in the Garden Café.
On Monday all participants will have the morning for exploring
and making photographs in the many different gardens before
viewing and discussing images in the afternoon. Freeman will
have a number of programs available; during the week he will
offer those he feels are most relevant to participants’
interests and direction. There will be one-on-one and group
discussions and opportunities for private viewing sessions with
Participants may opt out of any program, evaluation, or discussion,
as Freeman wants each person to pursue her/his own artistic
goals above all else. His role will be to provide relevant instruction,
objective (and subjective) evaluation, guidance, and support.
Participants will have access to all parts of Kingsbrae Garden
before, during, and after public visiting hours (from dawn to
dusk). You may also visit and photograph in the town of St.
Andrews (easy walking distance).
Our final evening meal together on Friday will be at Savour
in the Garden, a multi-course tasting menu prepared by the multi-award-winning
chef, Alex Haun. This will be an experience in culinary art
that you will long remember. (Read about Savour in the Garden
on the Kingsbrae web site.)
