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.

May: Willow Crowns and Natural Dyeing Experiments

May was all about willow and natural dyeing.

We made windy boppers from willow wreaths strung with strips of fabric dyed by the kids with natural dyes. We fashioned some ornamental dragonflies out of willow, which look great in the garden.

We lit the fire and made some sweet corn fritters, yum!

The children played with the hammock and experimented with some woodwork tools.

Thanks to all new and returning parents who attended, we look forward to seeing you next time!

        

Cody Dock Spring Launch Event

We participated in the Spring Launch Event last Saturday and brought some activities for the children to do. All around a lovely sunny day for the kids to go wild! This craft was inspired by the Ojos de Dios (a craft and spiritual object – read more here) originating from indigenous people of the Americas.
