These days are partly training for our existing volunteers, training for possible new volunteers and also just days for adults who’d like to have a go themselves. We have worried about the wording of these – we want to offer days for adults and teenagers rather than families – we do a lot of activities for family groups but sometimes it is good for grow-ups to have some creative time that is just for themselves…

These days also mark the overlap between the end of  our “Exploring with Stories” project and the start of the next phase of “Ancient Landscapes

Inspired by fossils from local limestone and the rich landscapes of the Upper Dove Valley, we’ll share skills, ideas and techniques giving ourselves time to experiment and reflect

 

No experience needed – just join in and have a go!

Workshops are free and materials are provided but spaces are limited so please book a place (either day or both)
