Ubud Linocut Workshop Series – The Gardens

Last blog I wrote about the excellent food on our linocut workshop, this time I’m going to tell you about the beautiful gardens.

We all know being in a beautiful garden is good for the soul. It changes you somehow. At the Arma museum and resort where our linocut workshop is held, the gardens are absolutely extodinary inspiration is everywhere. There is a river that runs through the property and several water gardens. So almost wherever you go you can hear the sound of running water, this really had a positive affect on me when I was there, it has such a calming influence. And to sit and draw this beauty, which you are surrounded by, really calms your mind and takes you out of yourself. The venue is an important aspect of the workshop, the gardens contribute to the shift in consiousness created by making in this environment. So you can come back feeling rejuvinated and inspired.
