Event description
The Art of Being

About this event

A relaxing and playful afternoon with artist & nature and forest therapy guide, Emma Capper, exploring these beautiful gardens through deep sensory immersion.

The Art of Being afternoon offers a combination of forest bathing and the expressive arts. Forest bathing or “Shinrin-yoku” is a health promoting practice originated in Japan. Translating as “bathing in the atmosphere of the forest” it is a practice akin to mindfulness where you are invited to connect through your senses to nature.

Intuitive or expressive art is the process of creating guided by what feels interesting and good to you in that moment.

No art experience necessary.

Suitable for 11yrs old upwards.

Herbal tea and flapjack included.

Sorry, no dogs.

The garden is actively under restoration and very much a work-in-progress with uncleared areas, uneven paths and no facilities on site. There is limited parking at the garden so car sharing where possible is encouraged. Visits will be cancelled the day before if wet weather is forecast.

We are pleased to offer subsidised pricing thanks to our National Lottery funding. If you would like to make an additional donation to our restoration project, any contribution towards our replanting fund would be very welcome! The garden is a not-for-profit charitable interest company and all profits are reinvested in the restoration and replanting of the garden.
