Join us for the third day of our weekend in the woods to share skills and meet other Forest School practitioners. Workshops, share food around the fire and camp in the beautiful Cefn Wood. Cefn Wood is a beautiful ancient mixed woodland with a diverse flora and fauna. The woodland is being brought into active management, with evidence of coppicing and oak bark collection. Adjacent to the wood is a meadow and river – perfect for taking time out. If you’re really lucky you may see an otter like someone on last years event! This is one of the oldest and best established Forest School sites in Wales and includes a range of beautiful shelters and lots of wooden instruments and other artefacts. The sessions will all be outside or under tarpaulin cover, so you’ll need to dress appropriately. Camping ~ pitch your tent in the woods or sleep in one of the existing shelters. The site has a tap & a wheelchair accessible compost toilet Car parking in the wood is extremely limited, so we may have to organise lifts from a nearby carpark. On Sunday we will be having a break brunch campfire workshop to share campfire cooking skills and then there will be another workshop in the morning with an Earthwalk around the woodland using shared techniques for this popular Forest School activity. Followed by a closing circle around the fire at lunchtime.  More details available soon. Please contact Barbara in the office.
