Workshops & Events

My workshops intend to bring a sense of calm and offer an opportunity for people to connect with their emotions, their creativity and with nature. If you're looking to bring some mindfulness and creativity to your space, I would love to host a workshop with you. Here are some ideas of what we could do together:

  • Intuitive art session with nature

 

Here, we connect with our senses and channel our emotions through simple, joyful art exercises. Using different materials to draw with, we will be drawing from leaves, branches and flowers, not only drawing what we see but how they feel to smell and touch. A truly sensory, immersive art session which is all about finding calm and being present in the process. 

  • Mindful plant drawing

Mindful drawing is another way to practise mindfulness. By focusing our attention on the pen we are holding, the marks we are making, we are in the present. Here, we'll be drawing from the plants around us, using different materials. A relaxing workshop asking you to let go, release judgment and observe the beauty of plants. 

Other ideas:

  • Sensual art and journaling 

  • Guided visual meditation

  • Eco / Sustainable art workshop with natural materials
