Avenir Light is a clean and stylish font favored by designers. It's easy on the eyes and a great go-to font for titles, paragraphs & more.

Video class meets outdoors at a different location every week for two hour sessions, usually followed by a cuppa and cake! We meet Thursdays 10am-12noon and the next course begins April 18th and run through May 23rd. Sessions run six weeks, and there will be three blocks of sessions. It's totally okay if you can't make every session. We begin with short exercises in listening and watching, (the sound and vision that is video), taking notes, and the class builds from there. Our notes from these brief beginning exercises combined with beautiful environments, build into longer video and sound works each session. Be prepared to have the way you experience the natural world deepened. Any and no experience levels welcome. Free of charge. You will see, hear, and experience the natural world differently. Sign up here: Video. Every course is free.

Nature Writing/Poetry

Nature Writing and Poetry meets over Zoom for a two hour session once a week for six weeks, Monday evenings 7-9pm, beginning April 15th running through May 20th. We are delighted to welcome poet, playwright, and interdisciplinary artist Rebecca Sharp who will run these sessions. If you have not Zoomed before we will teach you how well in advance and if you don't have an internet connection we will provide you with a dongle so you can join in. No writing experience needed! We meet in a small group online that is a safe, encouraging space to try something new or increase existing skills as we focus on our experience of nature; recent or in the past. These sessions will build your confidence in a friendly group, heightening the way you experience nature. Sign up here: nature writing/poetry. Every course is free.
