I’ve found that a return to busyness has arrived. At first it was with the children’s after school clubs and now with the additional appointments we are all trying to book in along with meeting friends and families for outdoor fun and juggling our work commitments too.

Connect and Create is designed to be a safe and welcoming community for women to come together to take time out, slow down and re-connect with themselves, nature and others amongst nature.
Each month we come together at Kingsweston House in Bristol to walk amongst nature, learn how to use photography as a tool to calm the mind, get creative and connect with others whilst we walk and explore.
Throughout the year I collaborate with nature based businesses to bring to you new creative skills and activities to express our individuality and learn how you can live more sustainably in every day life.
Connect and Create sessions are designed to be relaxing, calm and fun. You can read more about the upcoming collaboration with Clementine Moon here.
