Have you wanted to create a nature journal but don’t know where to start or how to do it?

This half day workshop will - hopefully - fix that. I will take you through the process I follow for creating my journals which are really an expression of the joy I feel when out and about in the woods or the river. I will be using my own journals of nature captured over the last 5 years and show how you can create a body of work by simply recording in your own way the things you see every day. I now look back on my earlier journals and can not only see how my artistic style has evolved and changed but more importantly I can look up the dates when I first saw sand martins arrive for the summer, or when the last swift left, or when the first chiff chaff … well chiff chaffed!

And it is so easy - no rules - no great artistic skill required - just observation and a daily habit of drawing. I will show you the materials I use and the techniques I employ. Weather permitting, we can spend some time outdoors looking at the nature around us and we can then come back indoors and draw our observations.

 I will provide a small kit of materials which will include: 2 fineliners  ~  My Shortcut to Nature Journalling guide ~ A blank concertina nature journal , all of which are yours to keep.

I will also have a variety of fountain pens and journals available to try and buy.
