Doodling with Nature

Doodling with Nature

Thursday 4 July, 7–9.30pm

Explore the rich variety of nature’s offerings through the mindful process of ‘doodling’.  Without touching a pencil.

“It’s lovely to be here, doing something that really slows me down.”  Jan

Mid Summer … a glorious season to celebrate the beauty, variety, eccentricity and sheer magic of nature!

Join artist Megan Dowsett to explore the rich variety that Nature offers at this time of year, through the mindful process of ‘doodling’.  Use her extensive collection of seed pods, sticks, leaves and cones to create temporary artworks, known as Nature Doodles.

Through a range of prompts and activities, we’ll doodle individually, before responding to the surrounding landscape through the creation of a bigger, collaborative piece, discovering the magic that can happen when we shed the need for a perfect outcome and head out together on a creative journey.

This workshop takes place entirely outside, although there is cover for wet weather – please dress appropriately for the time of day and year, including sturdy footwear!  Finally, if you’re likely to be hungry, bring something to eat during our pause around the fire.

A visual artist based in Exeter, Megan works with a variety of media, exploring connection with people, place and nature.  Nature Doodles is continually evolving, and has formed an important part of her practice for over two years.
