Forest Therapy & Book Making 28/07/24

A mindful creative session, to awaken your senses and connect with nature

  • 35 British pounds
  • The Avon Centre (Forest area)

Service Description

Forest therapy has been proven to increase the NK cells needed to fight disease and improve mental health. Many find being in nature, especially amongst trees, helps reduce stress and anxiety. (More info on this on my Forest Therapy page https://www.charlottehawke.co.uk/foresttherapy). During the first part of the session you will be invited to connect with your senses through forest therapy invitations, this can help you to slow down, consider how you are feeling in your body and mind, and consider your place within nature. The art workshop that follows will focus on mark making, drawing and collecting natural objects to print with in your own little book. I hope that your newly awakened senses will enjoy finding a sense of creative flow during this workshop! The workshop is set within the beautiful woodland at The Avon Centre, Bristol. There is a shelter if the weather is awful, but we will be embracing the elements as part of our experience! During colder weather we can have a fire to warm us. Please wear good footwear, dress accordingly for the weather and bring waterproofs, in case it rains. 10:30-12:30 (2hrs) How to find The Avon Centre: Car: Use address below. There is plenty of parking (please note there is a riding competition on at the same time as this session so we have ben asked to park near the building on the tarmac, rather than the gravel car park. There is an entrance to the woods opposite the gravel car park. Head down the path- ahead you will see a fenced area with a gate - please meet me inside there. The Avon Centre Kings Weston Road Henbury Bristol BS10 7QT Bus: There's a bus stop by Blaise Castle on Kings Weston Road for services 3, 4 and 15. There is a 10min walk to The Avon Centre from that stop (along a level driveway, with an incline)
