When your interest is in teaching natural art to younger children we will:-

(for Forest School Leaders, Primary School Teachers etc)

  • Explore easy and accessible techniques to create striking sculptures suitable for all ages

  • Learn about different materials and what they can be used for

  • Explore different creation methods using natural materials only and techniques with limited tools

  • learn about group and individual activities that foster appreciation of nature and the environment, feed the imagination, expand creative skills and encourage team participation

When your interest is to learn about the philosophy of ephemeral nature art and how to put it into practice:-

(for art students, artists etc)

  • We will explore the creation process and how the art is developed by deepening your relationship with nature, through the practice of ephemeral art we seek to discover the subtle nuances in nature and be drawn into the environment and start to understand the cycles and processes of flux and transience

  • You will be guided through this process so you can discover for yourself its ethos via its practice and then take away with you a deeper understanding of how to continue your journey and make further progress through this art form

  • Investigate different creation methods and techniques using natural materials and limited tools

Space is limited to 20 participants. When available Julia Brooklyn, another environmental artist, will also be instructing.

The workshop will take place at Badbury Clump, near Swindon Oxfordshire.
