What we'll do
Build your confidence to use a knife for wood craft. You will learn safe techniques that will enhance your confidence to incorporate this skill in Forest School sessions. I can demonstrate simple rules for the children to follow to ensure individual and group safety at all times. Learn about projects you can try with different age groups, from kindergarten age upwards. Gain knowledge on how to prepare for projects, including wood selection and tool care. The emphasis is fun, participation and enjoyment for all.
