This year the festival has a few new vendors on hand to offer something different for festival goers. Out Of Our Tree Forest Schools are an Outdoor Education enrichment and Forest School Community Interest Company, and their quest is to reconnect children with nature and the great outdoors.
Seb Corall is the Founding Managing Director of the company who offer outdoor education programmes for schools and various events in the South East, and Seb will be on hand throughout the Saturday and Sunday of the Festival offering various activities for children and adults alike. An Ashford based business, OOOTFS has been involved with many community projects and local school educational programs, and the Festival are really excited about having Seb and his team with us for the weekend.
For the Festival Seb will be offering craft workshops for families which will give the children and families the opportunity to engage with natural materials, and inspire you all to create more using your local environment. The workshops on offer for the Festival will include:
For children (with adult supervision) Prices between £2-4 per child
Creating a pinecone Owl, Fox or Dormouse
A wooden Caterpillar or Firefly
For Adults Prices between £5-7.50 per adult
The opportunity to weave a Willow Reindeer of Flower
