Reflecting on the Many Histories of Woodcraft Folk

Thursday, 1 November 2018
On Saturday 15th September, members, researchers and interested members of the public came together at University College London's Institute of Education for a day of talks and discussions exploring the many histories of Woodcraft Folk. The event celebrated the move of our archive materials to the institute and opened up conversations which we're sure will continue as we move towards our centenary in 2025.
 
The presentations and Q&As were recorded so if you were unable to join us, or just want to refresh your memory if you were there, you can now listen back at your own convenience. The recordings are hosted on UCL's website and the day is divided into individual presentations and sessions.

This session was run with an Elfin group as part of a term's work on 'Community' to explore the theme of 'Our Woodcraft Commiunity'. We discussed the meaning behind the Woodcraft logo, and then used a selection of postcards to explore our understanding of Woodcraft Folk's values.
