The Beacon is partnering with Belville Community Garden Trust and Mind Mosaic Counselling and Therapy to deliver a series of online workshops exploring the connection between our mental health and nature. Guided creative exercises will support you to investigate this relationship, both as a group on Zoom and independently throughout the week outside in nature.
Workshops will be led by Kate Stevens, the Beacon’s Creative Learning Co-ordinator, who will guide you through exercises in writing, soundscapes and guerrilla art. The workshops will be supported by Gwyneth from Mind Mosaic Counselling and Therapy leading on mental health and Laura from Belville Community Garden Trust leading on connecting with nature.
Participants will book the block of workshops to foster an environment of connection among the group. The workshop is open to anyone and you don’t need to have experience before attending. The workshops are well supported and will encourage a friendly, warm and safe atmosphere.
Participants will need access to the outdoors during the project, a laptop/computer/tablet with Zoom software downloaded, and some paint or permanent marker pens.
The workshop is FREE to attend. Suitable for ages 16+.
*Please note bookings cover all three classes in the workshop series.
