Create a Nature Collage Map

August 10 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm

Join artist and forest therapy guide Susan Bickford for a guided, mindful walk and craft workshop. Returning to a time pre-technology, participants will employ their eyes, ears, and touch to document their experience, transferring their observations into a 3-dimensional creative collage map. This fun, interactive, and tactile activity further deepens awareness of nature’s elements, resulting in a texture-rich, aromatic artistic representation that participants will take home. Locally foraged herbal tea will be offered during the workshop to sustain participants’ newly awakened senses and imagination. All materials will be supplied.

Class Level: All Levels. Suited for teens 14+.
