Event description

Description

On these workshops, the first two being on the 27 January (10-12.30 and 13.30-16.00), you will slow down and use photography, mindfulness, and walking to look again at Westonbirt Arboretum. You will learn to take notice of the detail by focusing on colour, texture, shape and light. You will see the extraordinary in the ordinary and experience the opposite of 'snapping away'. As well as improve your photography skills, the workshop will help you improve your wellbeing. Finding the beauty in everything is a great way to deal with the winter blues!

You will start off inside, before going on a gentle walk around the Arboretum, taking photos in a calm and mindful way. The photography side of things will be kept simple, low tech and fun. You can use any device you choose, from a mobile phone, tablet or a digital camera. The workshop is suitable for all abilities and levels of photography experience.


Please note you can select two different time options. Further workshops are also being run on 28 April, 14 July, 13 October.


The cost of the workshop includes free entry into the arboretum.

Testimonials from people who have attended Look Again Mindful Photography workshops:

"I loved it - a great way to unwind, look at the everyday in a whole new way. The pedestrian becomes extraordinary." Nicky Connors

"A very different approach to taking photos. I felt free to really focus on what I was seeing and saw so much more. It reminded me to slow down and see the little moments of beauty of interest. To remember that these ‘bits’ of life are always there!" Jenny Barton

"It has shown me the photographic possibilities and mental health benefits of slowing down and looking carefully." Mike Walsh

"A friendly, gentle, mindful approach to photography in a fantastic setting." Adie Risborough

"Seeing the photo has always been my difficulty and this Look Again workshop helped me." David Calvert

"Fantastic. Different perspective. Opening of the Eyes." Simon Hunter
