Hands In Booklet

Hands In project wanted to reclaim the pen and paper and use them to help link us all together. So it was decided that individual members, groups and districts would be encouraged to submit stories, poems and pictures as part of a chain letter. A selection of these submissions have been presented in this booklet to be shared with all members. See eletronic version attached. 

Linking us together - Hands In! 2014

Hands In! 2014! is about sharing your stories and games with other Woodcraft Folk groups. We've posted the start of a story to several Woodcraft Folk groups, who are each the first in a chain of 4 or 5 groups. We hope each group in the chain will write part of the story and send it on to the next group. 

What is the Woodcraft Way?

Has your group ever wondered what the 'Woodcraft Way' actually is? Invite people to discuss what they think it means, and then to write a poem or song to explore or explain it. You could use the poem below as inspiration - it was written by one of the parents at Sheffield District's Gradbach camp in 2010.

March - a poem by a Camden DF

Many young people are taking part in the campaign against education fees and cuts, here is a poem written by one DF, Isabel from Cambden Woodcraft, contributed as part of the Kettled Generation blog:

 

My feet are numb

From marching in a crowd of banners and flags

Poetry against prejudice

Write a short anti-prejudice poem. You could write in the style of a Haiku, a form of traditional Japanese poetry. It is a 17-syllable verse form consisting of just three lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables (or beats). Haiku doesn't rhyme.

Examples:

Prejudice is when
people speak without thinking
and fail to listen.

I think words can hurt
More than hitting or kicking -
Cutting me inside

When you have written a poem you can share it with other young people through this website.
