Make a Book Mark from locally harvested wood with Huw from Ynys Twca in the beautiful setting at Ffarm Moelyci, where you can also see the resident herd of donkeys.

 

Course Date: Friday 21st April 10 - 12 noon

This 2 hour session is aimed at children aged between 10-14 years (and their parents if they'd like to book on too). It is a great way to spend time outdoors in nature learning new skills and making new friends. Huw is a qualified, bilingual teacher who has been running sessions in outdoor classrooms for many years. He believes one of the best ways to learn is by doing and having fun. Making a Book Mark in the woods covers both of those things! Although the emphasis is on learning new skills and kids enjoying themselves, safety is always a high priority.

 

What they will do:

Make a Book Mark to take home!

Learn how to safely use a knife and other traditional tools for crafts.

Learn to shave, burnish and drill wood.

Have an age appropriate understanding of knife laws and appropriate use and handling of knives.

Have a fun session in the woods learning new skills and making new friends.

 

The wooded area where the course will be based is adjacent to Snowdonia Donkeys, a charity which works to help change the lives of both people and donkeys. So it is highly likely that the soundtrack to the session will not only be birds singing but donkeys braying! The sanctuary will be open to the public on this day between 11 - 3pm. So you will get a chance to meet the donkeys after your course. There is also an event 'Celebrating Books' on that day so you can join in the fun of that too. Bring a packed lunch and make a whole day of it.

 

The course is limited to 6 attendees to ensure everyone gets the most from the session. Although the course is aimed at ages between 10 and 14 years, adults can book on too if they wish to join their children on the course. Non paying parents or guardians are asked to stay on the farm during the course and leave a contact number with Huw in case he needs to contact you. During this time you are able to walk around the farm and catch glimpes of some of the donkeys in their fields. After 11am the sanctuary will be open to the public so you will be able to meet the donkeys in the main shelter too.

 

Please note: a minimum of 4 bookings is required in order for the session to go ahead. If the minimum number is not reached, the session will be rescheduled to a later date.

 

After you have booked a place on the course, you will receive a confirmation email and a link to a file with information about how to find Ffarm Moelyci and what to do when you arrive. Please do contact us in the meantime if you have any questions.
