Nurturing Art & Nature Workshop

  • McHarg Creek SA 5157 (map)

All I did was to look at what the universe showed me

Claude Monet

There has always been a close relationship between art, artists and nature. This workshop is a way to explore/deepen that relationship.

You are invited to immerse yourself for a whole day in an idyllic private Eucalyptus woodland with soaring gum trees, native plants and animals, and beautiful wildflowers.

Experience moments of deep calm and insight, connect with nature, engage your senses and enhance your creativity with a forest bathing (shinrin yoku) session. Research shows that spending regular time in nature improves creativity amongst many other benefits.

Spend the day unfolding, discovering, noticing, exploring with nature as partner and a Nature Connection Guide. The palette of nature will present itself and you are invited: tree poetry, mandalas, walking meditation, sit spot, using nature's mediums and more.

BYO lunch, water and journal/sketch book.

Note: a small section of the terrain is a bit steep but suitable for most mobilities.
