Nature Journaling workshops

I am delighted to be running a series of 6 nature journaling workshops as part of EcoFest 2024 in March and April this year.

They are being held at 3 different venues throughout Auckland - one of them is bound to suit you! 

Create a Concertina-style Sketchbook 

21st September 2024

Selwyn College, Auckland

Come and join me at Selwyn College, Auckland for a day making your own sketchbook!

Come and create your own concertina-style sketch book with a difference – an ideal travel journal or nature journal and create a memory of the world around you. You will design and create your own covers, learn to fold and cut your paper and add an elastic strap to keep it altogether.

From nature journaling workshop at Cornwall Park

'Lesley is a very talented artist. We were amazed how quickly she can draw a feather yet capture all the essence to bring it to live.'

'Just really a privilege to immerse myself within the world of observation, sketching, colouring and responding.'

'Lesley was very helpful and her enthusiasm and experience helped me in my drawing'
