Duration: 1 hour
Brought to you by Rachel Howfield Massey from Other Ways to Walk, this workshop will introduce simple techniques for printing from natural materials. Using waterbed inks and recycled papers you will create a series of prints from leaves, feathers, flowers or other textured materials – feel free to bring your own natural objects, but remember to collect responsibly – only take what you need and only if there is plenty more still growing.
Rachel Howfield Massey is a consultant and practitioner specialising in the health and wellbeing benefits of creatively connecting with nature. Her practice is diverse encompassing walking meditation, shinrin-yoku (Forest Bathing), wildlife tracking, collecting, drawing, digital broadcasts (audio and video) and writing.
Her work is informed by research but not confined to theory – she can often be found investigating the different smells of an oak tree or installing a hammock as an act of protest against the cult of busyness.
Rachel plays an active role in the field of Culture, Health and Wellbeing working with Culture Health and Wellbeing Alliance and as a member of the Royal Society for Public Health Arts, Health and Wellbeing Special Interest Group. She is a qualified Mindfulness Instructor, Mental Health First Aider, Walking for Health Leader and Forest Bathing Guide.
All materials provided but bring anything you would particularly like to print on (nice paper, card, fabric) or print from (leaf, feather, flower – please pick responsibly).
