CREATIVE

Taking inspiration from the
natural world

img

Being in nature inspires creativity and provides the space and resources to look at the world in a new way.

Get Out More runs creative outdoor sessions which tap into imagination and make use of seasonally available materials such as leaves, berries, sticks and clay, to learn new skills and create fun crafts to take home.  We provide introductory workshops suitable for all ages and abilities in:

  • Woodcraft
  • Willow craft
  • Natural colour
  • Foraging and campfire cooking
  • Christmas or Easter crafts
  • and many more ideas using natural materials

We believe passionately in the power of nature to promote health and wellbeing and have designed and run creative walks to help people get a fresh perspective – see the Lose Yourself case study below.

Our creative sessions and walks are suitable for visitor attractions, schools, festivals and family learning programmes etc.  Previous clients include Nidderdale AONB, the National Trust, and the Great Yorkshire Show.

If you are interested in finding out more about creative walks or workshops or book a session for your setting, please contact us.

Thank you once again for running these creative sessions for us. They continue to be extremely popular and it is great for us to have such brilliant events in our programme.

I just wanted to extend a big Thank You from NiddFest for Sunday. The kids had a magical time with the art and it provided good learning for us all.

I just wanted to thank you for the course at the Yorkshire showground on Monday. Lots of useful tips and ideas for me to take back to my forest school club.

Lose Yourself, Kirklees Council

In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks.     

John Muir

 

Get Out More worked with Kirklees Council to create Lose Yourself, a woodland wellbeing trail in Longley Woods in Huddersfiled.  This self-guided walk invites adults to find peace for body and mind through a series of sensory prompts, that can be accessed via mobile phone or printed booklet.  The walk was part of an initiative by Kirklees Council to find creative ways to connect local people to local woodlands.

 

Louise Galvin of Friends of Longley Woods said, ” The walk is a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with the woods, discover them for the first time or experience them in a new way.”
