Wild Creative Workshops
Retreats | Festivals | Corporate | Schools | Small Groups | Personal Development
All workshops can be tailored for any age group.
SCHOOLS: PLEASE HEAD TO THE SCHOOL SECTION OF THE WEBSITE.
Our culture celebrates busyness and productivity yet our bodies show us clear signs to practice deeper listening, heart centred health practices and connection to what matters most.
Interwoven with practical, down to earth wisdom, we create a safe space to slow down, pay attention and explore mindfulness through movement, craft and ritual within nature.
With an art and ecotherapy foundation, communities come together through collective land art or individuals have freedom to commune with themselves in a supported environment.
These can be tailored for kids, teens or adults.
WHITTLING FOR SELF COMPASSION/COURAGE/EMPOWERMENT
Women have spent thousands of years being told to be nice, quiet and remain silent.
To be feminine is to be gentle, forgiving and passive in our culture.
Yet we have fierceness within that cannot be ignored.
This fierceness is a vital life force and the balancing side to our gentleness.
Both can exist together in harmony for us to lead a more whole life.
We whittle/wood carve a stick honouring our courage/power/self compassion.
(can be adapted for boys/men/mixed groups)
GRAVITY GLUE + STONE STACKING
Practising stacking stones is a meditative exercise but can be loads of fun too.
It's a playful, interactive workshop whereby participants learn about 'gravity glue' ie: the sweet spot to stack stones then have a play with this either together or solo.
MINDFULNESS MANDALA (Earth Art)
Mandalas represent the ideal universe. When we collectively create a mandala we gently work through and integrate new life lessons we've been learning, share our stories and recognise collectively, our experiences are shared.
It's an ideal group experience as the earth art becomes a living form of expression by all the people present.
Using natural materials of sticks, wool, feathers we will create a TALISMAN FOR INNER WELLBEING.
The emphasis is about the process of creation and focussing on the quality of time we spend communing with ourselves or one another.
KINDNESS CLAY BOWL
Working with the story of the clay we will meld our own magic into the texture and create Kindness Clay Bowls to take home. Each participant crafts and designs their own bowl then writes notes of kindness to both themselves and others in the group. This practise promotes random acts of kindness as well as extending kindness towards oneself which is an expression of self compassion and shared humanity.
Leaf painting/drawing and stick painting is a practise in mindfulness.
Through 'slow looking' and observation of elements of leaves; spine, flesh we commune with our inner worlds in a gentle, harmonious manner. This is a beautiful grounding exercise for participants who are ready for a chill out and comedown.
BEING IS BECOMING SPEAR (Girls/Youth 8-17y)
I love the idea of young women not shying away from their power.
This workshops guides girls in whittling a Being is Becoming spear.
A spear symbolises both fierce power and being brave enough to be our authentic selves.
This workshop is about being your true self.
As you move into teen years & beyond.
There is no other you.
The world needs you to be who you really are.
BEING IS BECOMING TALISMAN
(MOTHERS + DAUGHTERS/FATHERS + SONS aged 8-17y or just kids)
A talisman represents a protective force that will watch over you.
The symbolism of mothers/fathers making their own alongside their children lies in the connectedness between parent and child.
It also serves as an icon for the rite of passage the kids are walking through, supported by their parents.
Each swap talisman’s and write/decorate/dedicate something to one another on there to commemorate this moment in time.
BORN WILD + CREATIVE
(MOTHERS + DAUGHTERS or just girls 8-17y)
We create WILD CREATIVE jewellery to remind ourselves we are born wild and creative.
These aspects of our spirit never fade or disappear.
This workshop will be about connection to our intuition.
Too often as girls and women we are told to ignore our intuitive responses to things, places, people and situations.
Yet our intuition is a compass for our safety and guidance.
