workshops   about

A playful and profound process to connect with Nature and your creativity. 

"Working closely with natural materials over the past 25 years has brought so many joyful surprises and positive experiences for me. My hope is by offering small scale workshops many people may have the opportunity to creatively engage with the natural environment in a rich and sensitive way.Creating with Nature's materials brings me into a state of  awareness that is both peaceful and potent with possibility." 

COLLABORATIONS WITH NATURE are playful art explorations. Held outdoors, they offer a unique experience  between your imagination, and the incredible variety of natural environments and materials so often overlooked in our busy lives. 

This workshop provides the time, space and inspiration for you to create works using materials and elements found on site on the day of the workshop. Shona provides a framework of ideas, and a safe and inspiring environment for you to learn to access your creativity anywhere!

I was caught without an umbrella last week walking home from work. It was heavy rain and as I walked slowly home I got a lovely sense memory of being dripping wet creating my outdoor ephemeral artwork. It made me happy and I’ll never complain about getting caught in the rain again. Too many happy memories. - Belinda Lee 


Thank you Shona for fabulous facilitation and a fun day in the outdoors. - Robert Bain


I've already had the opportunity to make outdoor art with my little boy during a beach trip yesterday. We both loved it.  - Megan O’Conner
