Details of the workshop Nature journaling is a calm, restorative creative practice rooted in deeply observing nature in your local area. In this workshop, you will have the chance to try it. The workshop will begin with a brief talk about what to expect, provision of prompts and materials. Then we will go out to some urban biodiversity sites to practice. We will return for the last hour of the session, to try creating some artwork based on the outdoor experience, using Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils.
