What you'll do
Treat yourself to a digital detox and capture the natural environment around you with pen and paper. On this experience you'll learn the basics of curating your very own visual journal with a resident Landscape Architect. We’ll sketch our way along Nahoon River on onto the sand and surf of Nahoon Beach, the most southern portion of the Wild Coast. Here we will embark on a drawing adventure, uncovering the layers of nature through ink and paper, overlooking the waves from underneath a dense canopy with sandy beaches and dunes as far as the eye can see. Before we begin we’ll meet at the Beach Break Café close to the East London Surf Lifesavers Club for coffee, tea or juice. After a brief introduction and refreshments we’ll head out towards the beach, starting along the river, meandering to several of my favourite sketching spots before ending on the beach. Included in this experience, you'll receive a personalised Buffalo City sketch pack, including a hand-made sketchpad, pen, pencil and small memento.
Rhuben is a Landscape Architect with 5 years of professional experience living and working in the Buffalo City. As a designer of the external environment, instead of sketching simple illustrations he’ll reveal the underlying beauty of nature in a way not previously explored. Other than a passion for drawing, Rhuben is interested in fitness and exercise, spending most weekends with his sketchbook exploring new trails & seeking adventure.
Your first coffee/tea or juice will be covered by me. Larger confectionery items or meals not included.
