Nature art programme
- Weekly at the Eden Project
- Health and wellbeing benefits
- A social prescribing programme
- Temporarily postponed
The Eden Nature Art Programme is for people with long-term health conditions, helping give their creative side a workout. It's part of our social prescribing programmes.
This activity is part of:
Following the recent government information regarding coronavirus and the susceptibility of people with underlying health conditions we have decided to take the precautionary measure to postpone our social prescribing activities. We will be monitoring the situation and taking advice about the best way to proceed and we will resume our activities as soon as we can. Thank you for participating in the group. We will inform you through our usual channels when we resume.
Working with an expert arts practitioner from The Creative Gym here at the Eden Project, using plants and plant-based products, participants will have the opportunity to explore creativity for the enjoyment of making rather than focussing on the finished product.
'Coming to Eden is the highlight of my week. It boosts me to get out of the house and see others. I always come away feeling happy and relaxed.'

About social prescribing at the Eden Project
At the Eden Project we believe in the power of connecting people with each other and their environment – the power of people collectively doing things to improve their lives and the lives of others around them.
The nature art programme is part of Nature’s Way, a social prescribing programme that provides opportunities for people to connect and support each other in order to improve their health and wellbeing.
