Discover your interests
We are excited to offer this brand new 4-week creative course where, together we will explore what it means to connect to a place – and ourselves. Through stories, folklore, art, foraging and a variety of other means we hope to create a sense of belonging and a more meaningful relationship with the place we call home, our wider community and the landscape. Throughout this course you will have the opportunity to learn about long-forgotten myths and folklore, identify locally grown plants and their many uses and beneficial qualities, to produce your own inks and paints using natural resources such as earth and rock and to use these to create your own colourful, expressive story through mark making and mindful drawing activities.
This course will, on occasion require learners to briefly go out and about in the nearby area surrounding the Recovery & Wellbeing College, as well as getting their hands dirty so please dress accordingly.
If you would like to discover the inspiration for this course, please read the Facilitator, Hannah-May’s blog here:
