A summary
What are the ingredients that make Forest School? This workshop is the result of a running joke between Vicki Mateu, a Forest School trainer and practitioner in Catalunya, Spain and Lily Horseman, a Forest School trainer and practitioner in the UK. Using the ingredients that make a salad we will be exploring the elements that make a Forest School. Deepening our understanding of the interaction between each of the elements. Drawing on the cross- cultural elements of their own work Lily and Vicky will help you playfully reflect on your own work in nature with children. Do you have raw potato in your salad? Are you making coleslaw? has your salad become a soup?
