Sunday 12 - 2pm ish 


Learn how to create a nature journal!

Nature Journalling builds confidence, memory and wellbeing by immersing yourself in the wild and recording what you encounter. Develop skills in drawing, confidence and natural history at this interactive, fun workshop!


You don’t need to be an artist. (You can be rubbish at that, it doesn’t matter! ) What matters is you, a curious mind and a willingness to have a go!

All art materials are supplied, but feel free to bring your own art materials (but travel light!).

We’ll start inside, but head out into the grounds of the Flaxmill to discover local wildlife and learn how to capture it in the pages of a journal.


Meet in The Stables (Flaxmill Maltings) at 12 Midday on Sunday 28th for an introduction before heading outside.
