Slow down in nature, join us for a walk and talk and to create something beautiful with your hands in nature for Diwali 2022.

A 7 – 10 km walk – all welcome, families too who can comfortably walk that distance. Booking essential.

 

Additional information

This will be co-led by Dr Geeta Ludhra who runs the intergenerational community walking group, Dadimas CIC, and artist Kuljit Jutla, along with her sister in the photograph above.

Families are welcome to take part in this 7 – 10 mile walk and then slow down and create beautiful floor patterns with their hands from natural materials, inspired by rangoli or fractals in nature.

Sat 23rd October, 10am, meet at M40, Junction 6 layby, signposted Watlington/Princes Risborough in Oxfordshire.

Distance: 7-10km (inc Cowleaze Woods). Some moderate incline. Suitable for families who are reasonably fit.

Kuljit’s work is inspired by fractals in nature, and she has been a keen walker in Dadima’s community since 2021. This walk is perfect for families & children who want to explore more sustainable art creations through nature. Diwali is a special celebration and time of year for my family, with universal themes and educational lenses for children to learn through.

At Dadima’s, we are keen to make cultural celebrations more sustainable and family-orientated. Kuljit’s Instagram page is: @kdotjdesign if you want to see some of her work.
