£80 | £95 | £120 *
This workshop offers a chance to creatively meet the trees in the wood. In June the abundant blossom of the elder scents the air and it is a time to get to know this tree a little more. We will explore folklore, medicine and craft all the while connecting with the natural world. Cordials, teas, beads and more. lets see what happens!
The workshop will provide a space to engage in a range of crafts, facilitation techniques and give learners skills to take back to their own setting. A workshop ideal for educators, artists, youth workers and forest school leaders.
