Earthkin invites you to attend a morning gathering focussed on the gift of trees.

There will be two sessions.

Kevin has a PhD in Geology and for the past five years has been sharing his knowledge of, and loves for, this ‘Wonderful World’ of which we are a part. Prior to this he spent many years teaching Biblical Studies to students in South Africa.

Session 2: 'The Lure of Trees for the Artist' led by Patrick Shirvington - Artist
Pat began painting full time in 1975. He participated in drawing classes throughout Europe and the USA. He has been a finalist in the Archibald Prize and other painting competitions. His works can be found in several Australian and overseas museums.

We as a species were born in and of the forest and grew up with it. Therefore we carry the echoes and specialness of trees in our genes.
