OUTDOOR WORKSHOPS

These workshops connect people with the wisdom of the earth, trees, sea and sky. Here participants find their own relationship with land and seascapes through simple movement scores. From this, personal responses arise to varied terrains and weather conditions which may evolve into artwork, written reflections or dances. These  workshops, in the Budleigh Salterton and Exmouth area, run throughout the year. You can see images of previous workshops in the videos below and the Gallery page of this website.

Participants’ Comments:

One of the best days in a long time…fruitful, peaceful, relaxing  and inspiring. It brought to the fore creativity and capabilities I did not think I had. Liz Goulding

It filled me with a sense of awe and wonder that we should be blessed with such nature around us…it is all there for us to appreciate and take in. The magic stayed with me through my donkey that wanted to play. I found support and security in the trees after a somewhat challenging descent…saw what my imagination described as a temple in the horizon…a sanctuary of rest. Helen Goodman-Payne

Information on workshops for 2019 will be available in January. For details phone Michelle Wilkinson on 01395 271037 (Mon – Sat 9am – 7pm).
