October Workshops at Mountain Lakes Begin Sunday

I'm passing along info about a nature series being hosted by my former employer, the Friends of Princeton Open Space:


Friends of Princeton Open Space is pleased to announce a fall workshop series that brings new voices into the conversation about the value of nature and open space.

Nature as Muse: A Sensory Exploration of One Landscape Through Four Creative Perspectives

4 Sundays in October from 2PM to 3:30PM at the Mountain Lakes Preserve in Princeton

Friends of Princeton Open Space has invited four creative professionals to lead workshops in the Mountain Lakes Preserve that examine how nature inspires fragrances (perfumer), cuisine (chef), poetry (writer), and branding and design (graphic designer). Each workshop includes a woodland walk to explore - and catalog - the sensory landscape, followed by a simple creative exercise that puts the concepts we learn on our walk into practice.

Instructors:  
October 9: Perfumer: Etienne BouckaertFirmenich
October 16: Chef: Gab Carbone, the bent spoon
October 23: Graphic Designer: Sarah Smith, Smith + Manning
October 30: Poet: Douglas Piccinnini, writer and poet; chef at Poor Farm Food

Cost: $100 for 4 workshops
Details and registration at: https://nature_as_muse.eventbrite.com
Series only registration until October 1. After October 1, registration for individual workshops will be available, if any openings remain.
