10am - 3pm


Seeley Copse, Goodwood Estate, Chichester, West Sussex, P018

Age range:

A drop of session for children aged 5 to 12 years

The fun to be had....?

The perfect day for children who love art, crafts, creating and enjoying spending time outdoors.

You will spend the day creating sketchbooks full of ideas and making art and crafts to take home. Learn to use the natural resources found in the woods to make own creations. Make ink and charcoal over the fire, learn some hapa zome techniques (printing naturally with leaves) and make a nature kaleidoscope. Spend some time jotting down your inspirations, artworks and designs into your sketchbooks and by the end of the day it will be a reflection of your personality and creativity, full of lots of new ideas and ways of working, becoming something that you can continue using and adding to when you get home.

With some forest school activities included in the day, you will learn some fire lighting techniques, whittling sticks for charcoal making and using the campfire to create the ink we will be using. We will also be toasting marshmallows to enjoy around the campfire too.
