Event description
Join Simon Hutchinson from Climbing Tree and design and construct a nature play area.

About this Event

Explore, create and connect with nature in a collaboration between the Hut Community Centre and Climbing Tree.

Climbing Tree's team strives to challenge the traditional playgrounds available to children, often negotiating a sometimes complex and unique design brief.

There is a compelling body of evidence which suggests that contact in nature is important for the health and well-being of our children and the wider communities. The opportunity for risk and challenge is abundant in nature and exposure to it ensures children develop the skills essential to keeping themselves as safe as possible. Contact in nature ensures children develop a love and empathy towards their environment and in turn develop a sense of responsibility.

What to Expect in this Workshop?

You will be introduced to the theory of creating a nature play area and participating, hands-on, using those skills in the design and creation of a welcoming space for families and the wider community to enjoy, at your local community centre.
