Level of difficulty: suitable for all abilities.  We want to enjoy being in nature and each other’s company, and we will just adapt our walking pace to each other.

“Hard to believe but a couple of years ago I was not even able to walk to the end of my road.  I had experienced anxiety before but not like this, and I have no clue what brought it on!  It took ages but with the help of my family I pulled through and now I can enjoy chatting, walking, and being arty with other people again.” (Participant March’22)

Where are we walking and what art will we be doing?
We will meet at the Nuneaton Museum by Riversley Park where we will begin our walks.  When we know as a group what we enjoy doing we will begin to extend and explore our beautiful parks and landscapes.  Along our walks we will collect natural materials to create cards, crafty objects, take photographs, learn to draw, but mostly we will get to know each other.  All art materials will be provided to you free of charge.  Our walks will finish at Nuneaton Museum Cafe with a hot cuppa of course!

Learning Outcomes:

  • Gain a better understanding walking in nature benefits your health and wellbeing
  • Feel more confident in using creative skills to help you unwind and relax.
  • Meet new like-minded people with a shared experience of coping with low mood, depression, and anxiety.
