Christmastime in south east Queensland is steamy, sunny and sweaty. And often rainy, with thunderstorms. But that’s ok, because the weather is HOT and there’s no chance of catching a cold if you get wet through. Another local tradition of the week between Christmas and New Year is the Woodford Folk Festival, where an amazing line-up of performers converge in the mythical land of Woodfordia to do their thing (Woodfordia is north of Brisbane, in the Sunshine Coast hinterland). This year, I’m thrilled to be offering my nature journaling workshops as part of the Arts and Crafts programme of this fabulous Festival.

Each Woodfordia session is 2 hours duration and costs $35 per person, which includes a materials kit, and a print copy of Make a Date with Nature.  Reserve your place via the Festival Workshop Bookings page.

These are the workshop times:

Tue 27th Dec 2016 5:00pm

Wed 28th Dec 2016 9:00am

Thu 29th Dec 2016 5:00pm

Fri 30th Dec 2016 9:00am

Sat 31st Dec 2016 5:00pm

Sun 1st Jan 2017 9:00am

Another wonderful institution of south east Queensland is the Redlands Indigiscapes Centre, located in the southern bayside suburbs of Brisbane. The Redlands City Council is sponsoring a FREE 2 hour Nature Journaling workshop at Indigiscapes on Saturday 14th January 2017 from 10 am to 12 pm. Go to this page for more details, and how to book.
