With a relaxed and open, mindful attention, we will observe, explore, share and enjoy the unfolding of this particular Spring together. We will record what captivates both our senses and our imaginations, in individual ways, including through words. Short writing exercises and prompts will be given throughout the course to help with this. We will look at different examples of nature-writing together, and share our own creations, be they poems, nature notes, song lyrics, short stories or flash fiction. You will also be encouraged to explore another medium to complement your written pieces – drawing and painting, clay work or photography, for example. Everyone will be given a small, native tree in a pot to plant during the course, recording this in your own way. In this way by the end of the course we will have planted our own small but creative copse!
Costs: £30 for a six week course (this includes all materials, resources and weekly zoom sessions).

Distance Learning – How Does it Work?
