What to expect

AUTUMN Yoga and Watercolour Journaling retreat 24th & 25th September 2022 The act of keeping a diary is one of the very best ways to ensure regular self reflection. In fact, to set aside time for yourself and check in with your mind each day is very similar to meditation. The dear diary format isn't for everyone however, so this course is geared towards those who are looking to keep a visual journal that can be incorporated into your pre-existing routine. Each sketchbooking session covers introductory drawing and painting. You'll take away the confidence, knowledge, and all the materials you need to start your own journaling habit.

This is visible in her work, which is inspired by the illustrators of the Golden age and is often referred to as nostalgic; reminding the viewer of their childhood. This impression is emphasised by the subjects she choses, which capture the wonder and curiosity of the world around her, with particular focus on British plants and wildlife. She's currently working full time as a freelance illustrator, from her studio at the Three Storeys in Nailsworth. In her spare time, she nurtures a love of reading, a delight in gardening, as well as British wildlife, and a fascination with historical dress. Have a look at her work here: www.valerian.co.uk
