August workshop

Our next workshop is on the 9th to the 11th of August, we’ve got in a load of wood to keep the home fires burning and we’ll have some great warming winter food. The sun is getting higher and we’ll expect the spring breezes to thrill the experience of the escarpments and being in the bush. For workshop details check the information pages on this site and contact us if you’d like to reserve a place.

Participants in the last workshop in June did some exciting work, and weathered challenges walking the terrain in the process of immersing themselves in the landscape.

One thought on “August workshop”

  1. I love Stanthorpe. The huge granite rock formations are beautiful natural sculptures.
    Star gazing at night is another stunning feature due to the clean high altitude air and minimal light pollution (ever present in large towns and cities).
