The oak tree is home and habitat to over 255 living things from the community of fungi, lichens and mosses that stretch from its roots to its crown, to the animals, birds and insects who call it home. This workshop will inspire creativity and connect with our nature community as we learn through story, games and ancestral skills and from the trees and plants to see nature as our home and we her guardians.

The workshop will explore the themes of humans crossing the thresholds into the wilderness of nature and finding a sense of belonging and home. In the workshop, participants will be invited to cross the threshold of the human world to the more than human world and explore these themes through the lens of an Oak tree shifting to a more ecocentric perspective of the world. We will use natural materials to make inks, charcoal and use them to make maps of the landscape.

This workshop will take place outdoors and warm clothes are essential.

Suitable for families with children ages 6+. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
