Nature Crafting as Therapy
I attended and presented a nature craft workshop to adults at the Therapeutic Landscapes Conference in Adelaide recently. It was great hearing about research into the effects of nature based therapy, and how there is now clear evidence to support the belief that spending time in the natural world is good for mental health and well being.
Here are some photos from the workshop – it was a lovely group of participants, and some were very pleasantly surprised at their own creativity! I didn’t doubt it, encouragement is all that is needed 🙂
