Eventbrite:   https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/making-kites-natural-crafts-at-cody-dock-tickets-46389876369

Traditionally flown to celebrate Spring, we will celebrate the returning migratory birds and the long daylight hours of June!

To keep it simple and natural is the challenge!   So we will bring sticks, some paper, ribbons and string, but also experiment with leaves, grasses and reeds as trailers or tails…. Bring your creativity and running feet!   12 – 3pm .

As we are all volunteers, we ask for a donation towards materials, £1 – £3 per child or whatever you can.  Everything goes towards materials and things we make to drink or cook on the fire.

Isabel Yoga will lead a 30min kids yoga session before, on the grass, from 11.30-12pm – by donation of £1 per child.  (her facebook page)

Flower pressing

What a wonderful day at Cody Dock! The main activities of the day: making a personalised flower press, flower pressing and pounding. Really enjoyed by all especially on beautiful spring days like this one, our sessions are not only an opportunity to make a craft and play some games outdoors but to get to know new people and make new friends! This is true for children and adults alike and this is what makes Natural Crafts so special.
