We offer a range of nature based art workshops for all ages to enjoy. Please send us an email to discuss bookings at contact@treevenerationsociety.com 


1. Discovering trees via our senses
‘Discovering trees via our senses’ is a science/art based program that engages all 5 senses.

SIGHT
Take macro photos of trees using an Olloclip lense on your phone. Discover details in their bark & seeds & the veins on the leaves.

SOUND
Listen to the living heart beat of trees using headphones. Have you ever wondered how a tree transports water from the soil to its leaves? Can you hear the sound of water?

TASTE & SMELL
Taste a tree from root to fruit and explore the many sensory experiences trees offer us.

TOUCH
Create wild & wonderful sculptures with twine, twigs and found organic materials.
( Ages 5 & up )


2. Komorebi – Canopy collage
Make a delicate light filtering ‘canopy’ collage. Inspired by the Japanese word ‘Komorebi’ – which literally means sunlight filtering through leaves.
( Ages 8 & up )


3. Frottage
Explore the many textures of nature by taking rubbings of fallen leaves and plant matter.
( All ages )


4. Tre Beauty – Shadow tree drawing
Take a line for a walk in and around the shadowed branches of a tree allowing your imagination to intertwine with its natural form.
( Ages 8 & up )


5. How Trees Converse
A mixed media sculpture workshop where participants explore the dynamics of mutualistic association between trees and mycorrhizal fungi.

We will build sculptures of trunks of trees, extending the branches up to a shared canopy and create roots downward to meet the mycorrhizal network. (Mycorrhizae are symbiotic relationships that form between fungi and plants)
( All ages )
