Nature Journaling Workshops

Mindful time in nature

These two-hour sessions are designed for you to be present and mindful. We start with a guided sensory exploration during a wander in nature and then capture some of the experience on the page with writing, drawing or both.

Suitable for complete beginners, including those who may not consider themselves creative or artistic. All materials supplied, including light refreshments. Kathleen provides ideas, warm-up activities, templates and prompts. Or design your own page in your own style. As you prefer.

Sessions are in various locations around Naarm/Melbourne (including Arthurs Seat on the Mornington Peninsula, Braeside Park Braeside and Brimbank Park Keilor). On-line sessions every month but BYO refreshments on-line! Seasonal sessions with the Friends of Royal Botanic Gardens of Victoria (Melbourne).

Kathleen and Nature Journaling

Kathleen started nature journaling inadvertently while traveling around Australia. She was using watercolour paints that had been in the cupboard for years and were thrown into the caravan at the last minute. On this year-long adventure, she captured many scenes including the orange/red and brown/black layers of Purnulu, the variety of sea creatures on Ningaloo Reef and the gorgeous Tingle trees in Australia's south-west.


Since then, she has been regularly recording the more-than-human world in her backyard, the local park and other natural spaces. Now, Kathleen shares the joys of time in nature with others, including getting people started on their own journaling adventures, supporting them to find their own style or just encouraging people to "trace around it" and make a start.
