In this nature journaling workshop set in Mud Island Community Garden, we will construct a nature journal from recycled paper and other recycled materials and make a decorative cover using various art techniques such as leaf printing, leaf rubbing, nature collage etc.
We will also create pages inspired by the diverse natural surroundings of Mud Island Community Garden and provide inspiration for children to draw, write and record their observations of nature in their journal pages.
I will also provide ideas on what children can record in their journal throughout the year to encourage them to develop their curiosity and foster a habit of observing, recording and appreciating their natural surroundings.
An online tutorial will be available and will include full instructions on how to create a nature journal as well as many resources on how to decorate and fill the journal with poetry, photographs, drawings and observations of nature.
The event is suitable for all ages but younger children will need some assistance and supervision.
