June 2022 meetup + beginner workshop
Thanks to everyone who came and participated - we had some new people join in for the beginner's workshop, so it was very exciting. We learned about using words, pictures and numbers to capture what we noticed, wondered and felt. Then we all had a go at doing some blind contour drawing before finding a subject or two to study. The air was crisp but otherwise beautiful weather to explore the lake while walkers passed by.
In honour of International Nature Journaling Week (1-7th June) I want to make this meet-up extra special, so I'll be running a beginner's workshop on nature journaling. I'll go through what nature journaling is, basic prompts to get you started, do a demo and answer any questions to help you gain the confidence for your own pages. There will also be time for your own journaling.
All skill levels welcome. Please register below if you plan to attend.
