In this workshop I’ll introduce the practice of nature journaling and teach you some simple exercises to get you drawing and writing. I’ll introduce you to the ecology of Toohey Forest, and talk about some of the plants and animals we’re likely to encounter. At the end of the session you will have started your very own nature journal, and have plenty of ideas to keep you inspired.
Worried that you can’t draw or write? No problems! I’ll introduce you to some simple exercises that will help to allay your fears and get those creative juices flowing.

This session is intended for adults, but interested children (12 yrs and over), supervised by an adult, are also welcome.
Bring your own materials, or purchase a materials kit on the day for $18 (retail value about $30). A materials kit consists of a Strathmore mixed-media visual journal 14 x 20.3 cm, 2B pencil, permanent ink Pigma Micron fineliner, and a print copy of Make a Date with Nature.
I will provide coloured pencils, watercolour pencils and paints to try on the day, plus lined paper for writing.
