Learn­ing the ways of the woods

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - What’s On -

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.
