What's Your Favourite Woodcraft Folk Activity?

Wednesday, 17 April 2019

This summer we will be making some new activity packs to help more children and young people to take part in Woodcraft Folk. We would like your help to decide what goes in them!

Welsh Leader Training weekend

Event date: 
11 May 2019 (All day) - 12 May 2019 (All day)
Event location: 
TBC - Machynlleth

Welsh Council are planning a Training Weekend aimed at group leaders (prospective and established) on the 11th-12th May in Machynlleth. 

We've planned for Saturday 11th to be a training day, with everyone invited to stay overnight (if travelling) and to go on a walk on Sunday 12th.

Following discussions with the districts today we have identified topics for the training:

Introducing Children's Rights Training

This is a training tool to introduce the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). This resource can be used by our leaders and helpers. 

The resource is downloadable from this page and takes about 10 minutes. 

Aims & Principles Outcomes Matrix

A successful programme for a Woodcraft group will include a range of activities inspired by our Aims & Principles. To help translating these big ideas into something that group leaders can put into practice, experienced Woodcraft leaders working with every age group have contributed to the creation of a set of age-appropriate outcomes linked to the Aims & Principles.

We (Debs McCahon and Sarah Welsh) are celebrating six months together as joint General Secretary and we thought it about time we wrote to all members giving them an insight into our work, the challenges, successes and demands.


CommonGround Poetry Workshops with Helen Mort

#CommonGround group poetry workshops

We are really excited to be working with Helen Mort (http://www.helenmort.com/)one of the most exciting women poets in the UK.  She is going to lead 4 interlinked workshops accessible for all ages but we particularly want to encourage DFs and Venturers  to come together to create a group collaborative poem which responds to the world we live in together.  We hope you will be then able to perform this at #CommonGround in 2020!

Lockerbrook activity weekends book now

Tuesday, 2 April 2019

We have been busy over the winter getting the Centre ready for our groups this year and wanted to share some of the big news and upcoming events with you all!  

In the first 3 months of this year we have had double the number of Woodcraft Folk groups coming to us compared the same time last year.  And we ran our first ever retreat for women in the Folk which had a great response.
