the February project 2022

an uplifting adventure that unfolds over twenty-eight days

February, the second and shortest month of the year (called Februarius by the Romans) was named for Februum, a purification rite that traditionally took place in the middle of the month. This makes slightly more sense when we consider that, before the Julian reformation of the calendar, Februarius was the last month of the year. It was a time to clean up your act and prepare for a fresh start.

In the north, it's when winter is dragging her heels through the mud and we are anxiously on the look out for the first tiny signs of spring.

Downunder, we're just trying to protect our seedlings from being seared.

Many of us know the burden of Seasonal Affective Disorder, an often debilitating condition brought on in the northern reaches of the Northern Hemisphere by the limited hours of daylight at the bleak end of winter. In the south, though we are blessed with the luxury of long, light-filled days, we sometimes feel the exhausting heat of summer may never end.

And ALL of us are so weary from the dark cloud of COVID-19.

While I originally began creating February projects for my friends in the cold dark north, anyone is welcome to enrol. I don't have all the answers, but I do know that having something delightful to look forward to helps. (Along with a lovely cup of tea.)

This year we will be working into one large sheet of paper. There'll be a new suggestion to explore each day, and a lovely transformation at the conclusion of the month that will leave you with an inspirational treasure (and a few more ideas to apply if you'd like to continue the exploration). You can whizz through each day quickly, or take a slow and meditative approach to each task. It's up to you.

Will you join me for another armchair voyage around the village well?

It's going to be lighthearted and filled with joy.

Frequently Asked Questions


When does the course start and finish?
The course starts on February 1 and concludes on February 28, but you can do it at your own pace if you wish.
How long do I have access to the course?
After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
Will I need lots of expensive supplies?
No. The most important thing is to have one big sheet of paper, but you can make this up by stitching or glueing smaller pieces together. Other supplies are drawing and water-based painting media (pencils, graphite stick, watercolours, ink) but again, suggestions will be made as to useful substitutions.

Please note that if you are enrolled in my year-long course, 'being(t)here2021' you will automatically have access to the February project when the time comes.

This offering is for those who simply want something uplifting to help them through February.

The supplies/materials for this course are flexible. Most things can be found around the home, and if not, you can make substitutions. You'll want one lovely big sheet of paper to work on, but even that could be made up of lots of sheets (or paper from the recycle bin) glued or stitched together.

This course is not presently open for enrollment.
