Skillshare – Networking – Training

These social and stimulating events bring Forest School practitioners and their families together to share resources, ideas and food. They are held outside in the beautiful woods where we all work, giving people chance to visit other FS sites and glean new ideas.

Temporary shelters provide space for Members to display artefacts & resources, as well as quiet corners to meet with peers for networking and troubleshooting and discuss grants, training and other trouble topics… the kettle is always on, and food is usually cooked on the fire to share.

Recent Skillshare sessions by members include felt making, Emotional Intelligence, Lantern Making, Ogham runes and Campfire cooking. Sometimes these events include training such as Woodland Management and Bushcraft Skills.

FSW organises regular member led skill-share gatherings throughout the year. Our AGM, including a skill-share, is held once a year and we also organisae CPD training days around 3-4 times a year.
