Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Have you ever done a knot relay, log dog race or tried human knots? Do you want to know how to make a rope ladder, simple bridge or a rope swing? Have you muddled your 'Humpty Dumpty' with your 'Sammy Snake'? Does your tarp always droop? Have you always wanted to try Nordic Romance Braiding, a tripod/teepee, bows and arrows, swords, weaving or something else....

Join Lisa and Jo from Nature's Footprints to find out how you can build on the knots you learnt in your Forest School training, improve your confidence and incorporate simple knots into your sessions. And if you're comfortable with some of the standard knots, we'll look at how can you push yourself and your students to do something a bit more adventurous. We will look at different games, ideas and activities that you can use to make knots fun and accessible. We will offer ideas and modifications to suit different ages, abilities and settings. There'll be a mixture of games and group activities and time for free play/exploration.

This workshop will be outside at the Forest School site at Beaumont Park. We'll bring drinks and snacks and make sure that our camping toilet will be available.

(Please note that the site isn't in the park itself, but is accessible from the nature trail along the old railway line or through Lockwood Cemetery on Meltham Road. Lockwood Station is within walking distance, there is a bus stop just outside the cemetery and there is some parking space in the middle of the cemetery.)

This workshop is free to members of Kirklees Forest School Network, and available to non-members for £35. (Non-members, please book and then contact us to arrange payment.) If you are interested in joining the Network you can find out more on our website, or you can contact us.
