Away With The Fairies!

I'm pleased to announce another new course, which will be led by my friend Mo Hammick (a.k.a. 'Fairy Mo'). It's a new children's day called 'Away With The Fairies'.

As it sounds, this is all about imagination and play in the woods. It may not have a lot to do with traditional crafts but from the trials we have been running it is simply great to see the joy on the children's faces as they build fairy and elf houses from found woodland materials. I must stress that this is not just for girls! My boys - or elves as they were then - have all enjoyed making imaginary houses in our garden for years and I am sure this is going to be a very popular day. We are starting with two dates: Saturday 19th June and Saturday 18th September. It's for children aged 5+ and an accompanying adult of any age.

Sorry to disappoint, but I can assure everyone that I'll not be dressing up for this course despite the apparent enthusiasm for the idea in some quarters!

  1. This sounds magical.. I wish that my son was 10 years younger.
    This project is so reminiscent of a little fairy dwelling that I built under a laurel hedge 42 years ago!
    Have fun!
