TWO NEW WORKSHOPS!
Exploring Mindfulness Creatively: photography
This enjoyable, practical workshop will help you learn how to use photography to develop your capacity for mindful presence. It will deepen your connection to the world around you and help you discover your innate creativity. No knowledge of photography is needed and any camera will do – even a phone camera. All you need is an open mind and an interest in how mindfulness can be applied to photography.
Land Art for Beginners
Learn about land art (or natural/wild sculpture) and some of the artists who practice it. Then try your hand at making some small pieces of art, creating something beautiful from abundant natural materials. No experience needed, just a willingness to try something new. Land art, by nature, is ephemeral so photograph it when you finish, keep it as a memento, or turn it into a personal greetings card.
Upcoming dates for these workshops:
Exploring Mindfulness Creatively through Photography: 3rd-31st July, Mondays, five weeks, 1.00pm-3.00pm, Southwell Library, Nottinghamshire
Exploring Mindfulness Creatively through Photography: 14th-5th October, Thursdays, four weeks,1.00pm-3.30pm, Southwell Library, Nottinghamshire

BESPOKE GROUP WORKSHOPS
I am able to supply bespoke courses and workshops for groups of people, whether these are private individuals or corporate groups. These can be tailor-made to suit your requirements – please contact me to discuss your needs.
I’m also happy to travel to other parts of the UK to hold a workshop for you. My charges would include travel expenses and – if necessary – overnight accommodation. Please get in touch with me and once we’ve discussed your needs I’ll send you a quote.
Stuck for what to get the person who has everything?
A Gift Voucher for a creative photowalk could be the answer. I’ll supply you with an attractive Gift Voucher and card, valid for one year from the date of issue.
