Creative Walk

April 2, 2023 @ 10:45 am 1:00 pm

Join farOpen textile artist Sara Rickard for a Canopy Creative Walk on Sunday 2nd April 2023

Full details and booking links are on our website

Meet outside Severnside Press BnB, Newnham on Severn at 10.45am. We will return to Severnside Press by 1.00pm to look at the Severn Sisters exhibition and coffee/cake/evaluation.

If you don’t fancy a walk and would rather just come for a coffee and share work achieved by participants at the Severnside Press at 1.00pm you are very welcome.

Please wear boots/strong shoes and waterproof/suitable clothing. You don’t need to bring an art kit, everything is provided but bring a camera if you’d like to record what we see. The walk itself is not long because we regularly stop along the way to engage with nature and explore our responses. There will be numerous opportunities to creatively make marks, take photos, collect found objects, write notes and enjoy the company of like minded supportive others.

This is a new route for a Creative Walk and is purposely linked to the Severn Sisters exhibition.

The joy of noticing something that often is overlooked can be very exciting and sharing ideas in a small group can hopefully inspire further creative ideas.

We keep the groups small & friendly so please book here to secure your space. Only 12 spots available. £5 suggested donation. 

An artist led walk for people interested in being active and creative, encouraging participation through written or spoken word, photography, visual notes, map making, story telling and drawing.

An experience for creatives and the general public, suitable for beginner walkers

Numbers are limited so please book as soon as possible

Tickets are by donation. We are a not-for-profit organisation. All proceeds go towards funding for our activities and events, cultivating creative communities throughout the Forest of Dean.

A walk designed and guided by Sara Rickard. Sara has lived in the FoD for over 20 years, is a textile artist and educator and a member of the Canopy steering committee. A member of farOpen and the Embroiderers’ Guild Sara’s own work focusses on stitch, both by hand and machine and is greatly inspired by the beauty of the forest.
