The Meditative Doodle & Beyond with Jan Clark

Members Only workshop at the Dungog Retreat

Doodling is generally considered a waste of time, of little value other than occupying one’s hand while listening to something boring.

You will leave the class with a new respect for doodling and a very accessible way of creating with very few materials needed.

To register you will need to login as a member first, otherwise you will not be able to register.  This is a Members' Only workshop.
