wonderful wonderful willow

wonderful wonderful willow

Willow is awesome. It turns wetland into better habitat, helps store water, captures carbon, creates pollinator space and offers material for baskets, walls, fencing and staking. Awesome.

The Art of Telling a Tall Tale with Chris Salisbury from WildWise

On a bleak wintery day here is something to look forward to. Please share. Chris is a professional storyteller aka ‘Spindle Wayfarer’ and is coming to Redruth to share his skills in the ancient art of spinning yarns. Chris is the founder and Artistic Director for the Westcountry Storytelling Festival. He also founded WildWise in 1999 after many years working as an education officer for Devon Wildlife Trust. With a background in the theatre, a training in therapy and a career in environmental education he uses every creative means at his disposal to encourage people to enjoy and value the natural world. He has worked with Ray Mears and John Rhyder, Joseph Cornell and Steve van Metre, amongst many others. He is a course facilitator at Schumacher College, where he also directs the Call of the Wild Foundation programme. This is an ideal CPD opportunity for teachers, performers, copywriters or any one wishing to harness storytelling for health or education. The event is not aimed at children. It will probably be held outside so wrap up. Simple lunch will be provided. Free for our Forest School Level 3 learners. February 25th 10-4 Book early to avoid disappointment via http://bit.ly/1Sg0DCh or go to the date on our Bookings page at http://www.natureworkshops.co.uk and follow the links. ...and they all lived happily ever after!
