What was Forest School Plus...
Forest; Forest School and Nature Play in your own venue
School: Curriculum Linked workshops and experiences in schools, at Herd Farm Activity Centre and in your own venues e.g. public parks. Also co-ordinator of the Leeds Forest School Cluster group.
Plus: Art and craft works sold through an online Etsy shops, exhibitions and fairs and Gelli Print art workshops for adults including art clubs.
Forest School Plus was established in 2014. Business built up gradually and by March 2020 the 200th Prehistoric Experience had taken place. Then there was a pandemic and lockdowns.
From 17.3.20 to the present outdoor learning and in school workshops have been in hibernation and will continue to be so until guidance and the vaccination roll out will allow a Covid aware restart for Forest School Plus, hopefully in summer 2021 at Herd Farm. Whilst social distancing the Art and Craft continued in lockdown and after an initial "holiday" the online shop was re-opened in May 2020. Plans are in place for virtual Zoom workshops; Meet an Archaeologist for schools and Gelli Print Workshops for adults. Contact Tina for further information.
