Mindful Making

Visual art workshops with a mindfulness focus

At Brockhole we are incredibly lucky to be surrounded by the beauty of nature - from the striking landscape of mountains and lake, to the nature and wildlife in our beautiful green grounds. These surroundings will inspire the Art we create and be at the focus for the mindful element of our session.

Your group will begin the session by engaging in a quiet, focused 'mindful moment' activity; where they are encouraged to observe, appreciate, and be inspired by the nature that surrounds them. 

This will be followed by your choice of inspiring and accessible Visual Art workshops, led by Rosie - an Artist and experienced workshop facilitator part of the Learning Team at Brockhole.

Making art in itself can be a wonderfully mindful experience; with the addition of our 'mindful moment' activity - these sessions will be a calm, rewarding and inspiring experience for your group. 

Choose your art discipline : 


Explore the exciting art of printmaking, through a monoprint or collagraph processes. You will create unique artwork taking inspiration from either the beautiful landscape of the Lake District and its wonderful wildlife or the Arts & Crafts era focusing on the work of William Morris.
