Tap into Yourself - Creative Arts Magic Garden Workshop

Home → Wellness Workshops → Magic Garden


 Saturday 3rd August, 2019



The question is not what you look at, but what you see.

Henry David Thoreau


Workshop Overview

Be inspired by colour and creativity. If you enjoy colouring but can't carve enough time for it, this is the workshop for you. On the strength and popularity of Johanna Basford's book, Secret Garden - we will be exploring a range of colouring and simple drawing exercises for personal reflections. Enter the magic garden of colour and imagination to play with and be inspired by possibilities for new bursts of growth, places of fallow rest and safe nests for holding. Art methods provide a window between our inner and outer worlds. Discover how simple colouring and art exercises can relax and inspire, enhance your self-awareness, provide tools for reflection and allow you to really tap into yourself. Allow yourself to blossom in this relaxing day of colour, imagination and self care to be inspired by possibilities for growth. 


You will have the opportunity to:

  • Experience a range of colouring and drawing exercises for self reflection, relaxation and fun
  • Build skills in art methods
  • Have time for structured art therapy
  • Reflect in ways that are comfortable for you
  • Work in the safe environment of a small group
