CHRISTMAS EDITION - Creating Gifts.
Come and join Sammy and Sebastian for 2 days of 'Plant Plethora' in our homelands of the Dragon Forest in Doonan, connecting with community & the natural environment surrounding our home studio.
During this 2 day workshop, we will be exploring the surrounding forest and environment learning how to work alongside plants, to peruse and play with our responses. You will experiment and learn a plethora of plant-based techniques to connect with plants, the community, and your own internal microcosm in reciprocity with the natural living world.
Bring a journal and wear comfortable clothing that is okay to get a few plant stains or an apron.
I will offer handouts so that you can take all the foundational knowledge home to continue your explorations. The document will outline all the content from the workshop alongside highlighting my sources for your own further reading and investigations as well as some of my own discoveries.
