A real opportunity to play in the woods! There will be fire lighting, the chance to saw and drill your own yoga camp wooden medallion, den building and plenty to discover.

Cloth loving Abigail has been soul sewing since childhood. Joining in her workshops will take your kids on a journey of discovery turning a bundle of scrap fabrics and some sheep's wool into take home mascots and toys. Bring your own clean favourite outgrown clothes and give them a new cuddly life.

Family and Kids Yoga

Morning sessions to start the day in a fun and stretchy way !

Build a go-kart out of a pallet!

This activity is great for bigger kids (age recommendation is 11 years plus), giving them some hands-on experience of working with wood and creating something out of what may appear to be “junk”. Every year thousands of pallets go to land-fill, so why not find something much better to do with them – and turn them into a go-kart?

It's always fun to saw things up, hammer them together and there may even be a power tool or two being used. All closely supervised of course. Because of that we will have to keep numbers quite limited – a maximum of 10 children only in this case.

One thing is of course to build a basic structure for the go-kart, but the creative side can go further than that, and with other recycled materials we’ll be funking up our creation in true grease-lightning style!

Parents are most welcome to hang around and even get stuck in!
