Nature journaling is a time-honoured practice that combines art, science, and personal reflection. It's a way to connect with nature on a deeper level, enhancing your observation skills while expressing your creativity. 


These workshops are perfect if you’d like to deepen your understanding and connection to nature. During the sessions, we start with a welcoming circle, to get to know each other and get an understanding of where everyone is on their nature journeys. Then it's time for the journaling to begin. We spend a couple of hours exploring an area of nature, using curiosity and creativity to complete several nature journaling activities.

Later, we settle down for a short group discussion where you can share your journal pages and reflections with fellow participants, if you feel comfortable to do so.​


Our public workshops take place in various woodland areas around Yorkshire, including the York and Scarborough locations.

"If you need nourishment and slowing down from the modern life then do one of these workshops! It also gives you the tools to continue with the practices which is really helpful. The location of Raincliffe Woods is lovely, a real gem. Many thanks Anna."
