Upcoming Workshops 2018 "Connecting in Nature: Stillness & Noticing" With Ivy Walker and Molly Murfee
Slow down. Tap in. And allow the modern world to fall away. Through silence, stillness and observation, reconnect to the deep resource of Nature and the roots of your relationship with it. Process what you find there through imaginative visual and written art exercises that allow your senses and the floodgates of creativity to open. Experiment with free flow writing, drawing and making art with the land.
