Introducing woodworking classes for children - and parents.

INTRODUCING woodworking classes just for children. Children love creating items with wood...it engages all the senses...

Why not invite the Just Forests woodMOBILE to your school for a whole day of woodworking-all tools and materials supplied.

Engageing all the senses.

It has been proven time and time again that children learn best through doing. The benifits of hands-on work is astonishing. Children learn how to think by measurment, problem solving skills and creative design. Their senses will also be ignited - touch, smell, sight and sound.

Hands-on education has been around for centuries.

That is why I have started my woodworking classes for children. Messing about with wood was one of my favorite hobbies as a young boy. I learned the basics of construction by working with and watching other woodworkers make and build all sorts of useful items in wood.

You may never have built anything in your life but that's no reason why you and your children can't do some woodworking projects together in your local school - or here in my workshop in Rhode.

Hands-on education has been around for centuries. Fredrich Froebel, best known for his work on kindergardens and play, has a lot to say about informal education. Froebel sought to encourage the creation of educational environments that involved practical work and the direct use of materials.

Be the change!

Why not book a workshop now for 2018 and start a whole NEW learning experience for your children. P.S. there will be a charge for this activity and children MUST be accompanied by their parent(s) or gaurdian.
