Fancy joining me in the woods?

I am combining the things I love the most and facilitating a series of outdoor journaling sessions.

These will be slightly longer than my usual sessions and will be an opportunity to explore, play and journal in nature.

You just need a journal, a blanket, a mug and a sense of adventure!

The Forager’s Journal is . . .

A series of immersive creative journaling sessions where we use nature as a canvas.

Though we often see ourselves as separate from nature, humans are also part of the wildness.


The Forager’s Journal will involve a hilly walk of around 5km (3 miles). However, there is access to our journaling spot without walking for a limited number of people so if you feel you do not wish to walk, please contact me to chat about your requirements.

There will be . . .

  • Hot cups of tea
  • Cake
  • Circle conversation
  • An opportunity for a dip
  • A few hours in the woods to reset, recharge and recalibrate
  • Sunday 7th April 2024
  • Sunday 26th May 2024
  • Sunday 21st July 2024

10am until 2pm


Near Sutton in Craven, North Yorkshire


£45 per person

Early bird price of £40 if booked before the end of the previous month
