Eco Printed Journals

Enter the new year in a mindful, embodied and beautiful way in this two day fusion of eco-printing and art therapy.

Co-facilitated by Qualified Creative Arts Therapists Jacqui Grace (MA AThR) of Beautiful Wasteland and Amanda Scott (MA AThR) of Amanda Scott Art Therapy, this workshop is an invitation to aesthetically reflect on the year that has passed and bring these knowings into collaboration with your intentions for the coming year.

This will be grounded in an experience of eco-printing on paper and textiles. You will then hand bind these original eco-printed works prints, creating your own bespoke journal to companion you across the seasons.

In this workshop you will learn how to:

Learn how to eco-print on paper

Set up a dye pot

Discuss mordants

Utilise arts- based tools for personal reflection

Develop tools for ongoing self-reflection

Learn book binding

Take home a collection of your own bespoke eco-printed journal.

Art Therapy is guided by you. The benefits seen in Art Therapy are based on the level that you commit and have ownership over your own inquiry, and our role is to guide and walk alongside you as a co-inquirer and companion. Below are some optional suggestions that may increase the benefits of participation in the inquiry process.

– Show up, be present, approach with curiosity
– Dedicate some time between sessions for your own creative practice
– Revisit your intentions throughout the process.

This process involves your commitment, your honesty with yourself and a desire to inquire. Our intention is to provide a safe space for inquiry and hold a commitment to honesty and utmost respect for yourself as an individual as well as our therapeutic skills.
