Down to earth Traditional crafts
We offer workshops in traditional and natural crafts
for both children and adults all around Ireland.
Our ancestors lived and relied on the natural world around them for all their daily needs,
food, fuel, storage, clothing and much much more. Nature provides the most amazing
materials to entice our creativity, along with story and song related to our local
environments, provides a feast for our imagination and wonderment.
One of my passions is using natural materials in a sustainable way, remembering
to take only what I need and always leaving much more than I take.
I think it is so important to learn which plants in our areas are on the protection
list so that we know what to pick and more importantly what not to pick.
Like all creativity, its about exploration of our materials, trying them out and playing.
In this website I will add natural seasonal craft ideas, with stories and songs that
you can share with both with children and adults.
So here's to lots of creative natural Fun.
So a little about me....
I am happiest in nature and Forest school is bringing all my passions into one creative mix.
I am passionate about Crafting with natural materials,
foraging, singing, telling stories, folklore, listening to birds and walking in the woods.
I love spending time with both children and adults in Nature and enjoy sharing curiosity ,
creativity and wonderment.
I am a Qualified forest school practitioner, special needs assistant,
approved therapeutic forest practitioner, leave no trace guide and
soon to be Forest bathing guide.
