Hands-on Education&Training

Teacher Training

Teachers looking for an alternatives means of engagement with their students would do well to consider the benefits of 'practical build projects'. Over the last five years I have developed a successful programme of educational services for schools and the Early Years community.

The following courses are available to teachers and other care professionals as an introduction into the effective delivery of this kind of holistic teaching and learning.

Have fun using a wide range of traditional woodworking tools whilst you creatively fashion something for your playground or garden. Get to grips with how to use this craft to sow the seed of sustainability and assist your children in developing a broad range of competencies whilst having a whole heap of fun.

Fabulous! Your expertise priceless. Fairly confident now after using some of your tools. More confident now in doing this with children. - Nicky

It is wonderful and awesome. Before I was still in baby stage. After workshop I feel I have learnt something valuable with a lot of fun at the same time.
