10:30 am - 1:30 pm
Family Art 6 + age accompanying adults free. Younger siblings welcome
Join Mel for a Family Forest School with an arty twist. Mel will take the group to a quiet spot in the woods where we will take inspiration from nature and have a go at a few different crafts. Crafts will range from wet felting, eco dye techniques, plaster casting and making sun prints with specialist paper. Please bring a picnic lunch. This will be aimed at children 6+ although younger children will be welcome to join in with the help of an adult.
What should I bring?
As the activities will be taking place outside, you should wear comfortable clothing.
Long sleeved shirts and trousers are a good idea but not essential
Comfortable outdoor shoes
Waterproof jacket/ trousers
Hat – for warmth or a sun hat and sun-cream
Picnic lunch and a drink
The sessions are for the adults as well as your child so do get involved and work together. Forest School is about individuals being just that; So if your child wants to explore or doesn’t want to join in on a group activity straight away, please feel free to go for a walk, collect sticks or just read a story. There will be lots on offer that you can do independently as well as group activities. Children are given appropriately challenging and achievable tasks that build their confidence, skills, and independence, encouraging a love of nature and all things green!
Note. Please arrive and be ready to go 10 mins before the workshop starts, the group can be anywhere in the woods and it may be hard to find them.
