10am – 12noon

 

1st May – 12th June Woodland Creativity (missing out 7th June). Try a variety of skills and creativity over 6 sessions.  Gain skills in making an outdoor fire using natural tinder and managing it safely for different purposes. Each week will be a different activity; Charcoal making, bread, woolcraft, whittling, walking, leaf mandalas

 

3rd July – 7th August Woodland Wild Art 

 

Using just natural materials in the environment around us we will be trying out some wonderful natural art. 

 

Losing ourselves in an absorbing artistic practice is always relaxing, and being in the woodland environment with other people, making a cuppa on the fire or kelly kettles, and going home with a photo of your ephemeral art you will feel a sense of peace and the restorative benefits of the natural world. Ephemeral means temporary – after we leave it will change it along with the living world around it. This practice was done by buddhist monks to and helps us be mindfully present in what we’re doing, without attachment to what happens next. Its a useful mental tool for life too.

 

 

                              

 

 

11th September – 16th October Woodland Foraging Walks.

 

We will mostly be collecting sweet chestnuts and blackberries, but may find other treats such as mushrooms and cob nuts. We will stop to boil the kelly kettle, chat and enjoy the autumnal views. If wet we may erect a shelter for our break.

Resonance
