Enjoy a unique experience at The Wilderness Studios – a series of workshops blending art, nature and journaling, designed for teenagers (aged 12-16) and their parents (or other significant adult in their life) to enjoy together.

Although journaling can include articulating your feelings with words, art journaling includes expressing ourselves through many different media and visual methods. You will be using paints, sketching, collage and embroidery, learning new skills and techniques.

The prompts can include topics around self discovery, but also gratitude and positivity, nature prompts, thought exercises and ‘silly’ art challenges designed to increase confidence and reduce barriers of expression and communication.

Sessions will be 2 hours long and cost £15 for parent and child for all 3 sessions, which will be run monthly. All materials, a journal for each participant and light refreshments will be provided. Tickets will be very limited and small group sizes ensures a safe, unimposing and welcoming environment.

The closest parking is the council site on Back Wesley Street and is less than a 3 minute walk to the studio. The studio is up a set of stairs so unfortunately the venue is not wheelchair accessible. Please contact Wilderness Studios if this is an issue as they may be able to find alternative locations to run sessions from which are more accessible.

Wilderness Adventures CIC is a not-for-profit community interest company. Any profit is funnelled back into the company to further benefit the communities they serve. These sessions are funded and made possible through support from Wakefield Council as part of Our Year – Wakefield District 2024.
