WORKSHOPS

6 May (bank holiday Monday): Exploring Creative Fire with Experimental Painting
10.30 am – 4.30 pm
One-day art-based workshop with Tina, using mixed media materials to explore your inner creative. This is not a ‘techniques’ or ‘how to’ workshop, this is much more about exploring the materials you are drawn to and allowing yourself to express your creative voice whatever happens. There is no right or wrong way in this workshop and there is no pressure to produce. We are playing, exploring and experimenting and having fun! No experience is necessary (in fact it’s an advantage).
£85 pp including light lunch and refreshments. Book before 26 April for early bird price of £75 pp. Eight places only. To book email hi@belovedsouthwell.uk

18 and 19 May: Wild. Wise. Will-full. weekend retreat
12 noon to 6pm on Saturday, 10.30 – 4pm Sunday
A weekend retreat for women who are feeling a need to reconnect with their inner nature and the natural world, and to the wisdom of the female body; who want to rediscover the fire in their belly and feel nourished and inspired.
Over the weekend we will explore our connection to nature and our inner landscape and our connection to our embodied feminine wisdom, using ‘Reclaiming the Wild Soul’ by Mary Reynolds Thompson and ‘Wild Feminine’ by Tami Lynn Kent as our guide. We will unearth buried desires and intentions that our soul knows but our mind might have forgotten. We’ll use contemplative writing and art-based journalling to capture our Wild, Wise and Will-full discoveries, and we’ll have fun and feel nourished and nurtured in a safe creative space.
No experience of art or writing is needed. Eight places only.
£175 including all materials, refreshments and lunch on Sunday.
Early bird £147 for bookings before 11 May.
There will be an optional group supper on Saturday evening.
