Sketching through Nature: How to create a personal Nature Journal

Saturday 17th June 10 – 4 pm
Lawrence Weston Community Farm

UPDATE: Due to a cancellation , there is one place available on this class.

Learn how you can create your own nature journal through sketching and writing! This workshop will get you started with simple tips, techniques and ideas.
You’ll find out how to:
  • really see the natural world on your doorstep,
  • question and record your observations in a creative way
  • increase your appreciation of nature
No previous drawing experience is needed.

This is a free day workshop in conjunction with Lawrence Weston Community Farm, who are celebrating their 30th birthday this year and Avon Wildlife Trust as part of the Wildlife Trust's  30 Days Wild.

To take part you must be over 18.
There will be outdoor sessions sketching around the Farm and Saltmarsh Drive Open Space* so please dress appropriately according to the weather.  If it is warm, please bring a hat, sunglasses, water and sunscreen.
Bring wet weather gear if necessary, and wear sturdy outdoor boots/shoes as the area can be muddy.

The day will be divided between working indoors and practical sessions outside, putting techniques into practice. Art supplies will be available to borrow, or participants can bring their own. Please see my Nature Journaling Page for more information.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided, but please bring a packed lunch. There is a local  supermarket, baker and convenience store at Ridingleaze, which is a 5 minute walk from the Farm.

Places are strictly limited and booking is essential. Please click HERE to e-mail me and reserve a place.
