Forest School Practitioner, Level 3
MA – Contemporary Theatre Practice
Certificates in First Aid, Youth Mental Health First Aid, Woodcraft skills, Inclusive Play. Enhanced DBS.
I have over 20 years’ experience in workshop facilitation, within both Outdoor Learning and Performance – based activities. I’ve worked mostly with children and young people but also with the elderly, NEETS of all ages, LDD groups, and drugs and alcohol / mental health support groups. I am currently working for (among others) Arts Council Wales, Tir Coed, HiJinx Theatre, Coel Lleol, Vagabondi puppet theatre, Festive Road and EdenVentures.
I offer imaginative, fun and creative outdoor play possibilities! Both Forest School-type activities – basic bushcraft (firelighting, shelterbuilding, cordage etc), greenwoodwork, games, quests and exploration – and/or site-specific performance: drama games, storybuilding and telling, music, poetry, puppetry and walkabout. So we could make spoons and use them to stir a pot of food on a fire, around which we tell stories…. Or explore the site and create dens or structures to host site-specific stories, songs or poems…. Or try out a survival situation – would we survive the ‘heli-drop’ challenge?..... I can bring a specific activitity or tailor the session to a particular group’s wishes.
