The Art of Wellness – An Immersive Experience – The Essence of Flowers

Join us at The PaintBox on a time honoured path to wellness through meditative creativity

A structured art and wellness workshop led by local artists and organic producers, all materials provided.

Most people know our Staff at The PaintBox in relation to the Art Supplies that we sell at The Shop but our family are also organic producers of a great mass of food and flowers from our farm in Mylor, market gardens in the Basket Range and of course the large back garden of our shop which supplied fruits and flowers to Hahndorf locals for over a hundred years.

Along with several local artists and likeminded growers we are delighted to share our enthusiasm for all of this abundance which is inextricably linked with our love of creativity. People who enjoy art and engaging with nature will likely attest to the fact that making art has a spiritual quality. Enjoying music, art and relating to the natural world has the ability to form, shape, and hold in front of your very eyes, something that you feel internally. This type of connectivity between your emotions and mind is transcendent—but did you know it’s also extremely restorative for your mental and physical wellness?

Join us for tutored afternoons immersed in art and flowers in our beautiful heritage listed studios which open out onto the rambling gardens planted by the Thiele family. Our organic café and Bar, Thiele’s Shop will be open in support of these events.

Join renowned photographer John Adams of Adventure Art Photography and experience a unique photographic workshop designed to help you to grow your skills whilst capturing the golden light hitting the majestic gums at The Cedars Hahndorf.

Suitable for all skill levels and for both digital camera and smartphone camera users alike, throughout this experience you will be guided through the whole process from the composition of a scene (including looking at some examples from Hans Heysen’s collection) through to the best camera settings, tips and tricks for photographing landscapes with trees. Under John’s expert guidance you will learn to get the best results out of your digital camera or smartphone and unlock your creativity in new and exciting ways!

Come join us as we explore the beauty the Cedars has to offer including picturesque gums, Heysen’s ‘artist’s garden’ and some hidden treasures along the Artist’s Walk. You will stand in the very location where some of Australia’s greatest art work were conceived and be able to capture it in time for yourself.

Come and enjoy an evening to remember; learn new skills, meet new people and capture some beautiful golden hour images in this exclusive Adelaide Hills experience

A tripod is desirable if you have one, but not essential

An amazing sunset is not always possible but we will make the most of whatever the conditions.
