With Multi-Media Artist, Jill Carter

Wednesdays 10.30 am – 12 noon   Dates: 20, 27 January, 3, 10, 17 & 24 February 2021

First, I have to find…

Explore the art of rediscovering yourself through creative journaling! Enjoy writing, drawing, doodling and mixed media collage, inspired by Self, life events, place, journeys both real and imagined, curious findings, and imagined possibilities.  

Discover ways to mindfully, playfully and poetically connect to yourself and others, developing creative expression, confidence and reflective insight.  Have fun transforming worries, everyday nonsense and challenging goings on, with diary, drawings and drama, creating your very own, less than perfect, unique journal pages.
