‘Bright and happy thoughts, contentment and peace of mind’ - Lubbock.

Follow the footsteps of John Lubbock, past owner of High Elms Country Park – unwind as you observe what you see outdoors.

There’s no need to be able to draw or paint and the workshops welcome anyone interested in nature - from beginner artists and naturalists to nature and wildlife experts! Record your personal responses to the natural world as you see it - using a combination of notes, quotes and simple sketches to capture interesting details. Enhance your discoveries with viewings of natural history specimens and live observations, along with a spotter guide and pick up a few sketching/journaling techniques along the way.
