Through bespoke workshops I re-introduce knowledge and skills that many people and communities have lost, or forgotten. The workshops arise from many years of teaching practice with participants of all age groups and are delivered in an enthusiastic and positive way. Working with whole communities, groups or individuals I design and deliver bespoke courses and workshops which pass on these skills and re-connect participants to the Environment and each other; all based on the participants needs and locality.
One of the overall aims of all the courses being to empower participants to be more self-reliant and independent, better prepared for an uncertain and changing world. The practical and experiential nature of all the courses also enables participants to develop creative problem solving skills and gain confidence in themselves.
