Learning the ways of the woods
A free forest workshop designed to help group leaders learn new ways of engaging people in the outdoors will be held next month near Ashford.
The event will be held in King’s Wood, in Challock, and will give the leaders the chance to absorb the knowledge and expertise that members of the Stour Valley Arts’ team have collected over the last 20 years by working in the woods.
Participants will be able to choose between a variety of workshops and demonstrations on the day, including North West Kent Countryside Project’s Men in Sheds, bat box making, journey sticks, sculptural workshops using natural materials and a group tour of artwork in the forest.
The event, which has been organised by North West Kent Countryside Partnership and Stour Valley Arts, and will be led by artists and staff from both organisations, will teach the leaders how to engage their own teams in an outdoor environment.
It will be held in King’s Wood on Friday, September 12, between 11am and 4pm.
The workshop is free but booking is required, with participants being asked to sign up to the workshops they want to take part in.
