Event description

Description

The Making with Mindfulness workshop builds on recent research in mindfulness which connects being in nature with an enhanced sense of calm and relaxation.

About

This workshop explores some recent research in mindfulness which connects being in nature with an enhanced sense of calm and relaxation. We will use natural forms from the beautiful botanic gardens to create shapes inspired by the principles of balance and harmony, and then draw these forms in several different ways. Spending time looking at and observing nature has been proven to help reduce stress and increase health and wellbeing. No prior art experience is required for this workshop, and adult participants at all levels of ability are welcome.
