Forest School is not just for children.

Time in the outdoors can have an enormous positive impact on a person’s wellbeing and mental health. With the busy lives that we all lead, it is important that we take time to look after ourselves as well.

Our Wellbeing In The Woods sessions take place in the tranquility of Oxhey Woods, in amongst the trees.

This April and May our sessions will be as follows:

  • 26th April - Willow weaving

  • 3rd May - Felting

  • 10th May - Whittling

  • 17th May - Leaves

What will happen in the session?
Sessions are 1.5 hour long and are run by qualified Level 3 Forest School practitioners. During each session we will offer you the chance to get creative with natural materials in a safe environment with like minded women, whilst enjoying a chat, explore the beautiful woods and finish with a warm drink and something toasted on the fire.

Why choose Wellbeing In The Woods sessions?
The benefits for adults of spending time outdoors are numerous and include:

  • Positive benefits of the natural environment include lower blood pressure and reduced stress levels.

  • Provides a unique opportunity to connect with like minded women without the distractions of screens, gadgets and the pressures and demands of daily life.

  • Increases self confidence and self esteem.

  • And above all else, it is very good fun!

What is the cost?

Sessions are booked and paid for in advance at a cost of £8 per person per session or £40 for 6 weeks. All sessions include craft materials, a hot drink and a snack.

What to wear?
At Forever Green Forest School, we believe that there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes! Sessions will take place in most weathers, so come prepared wearing lots of layers, waterproof coats and trousers, warm hats, scarves and gloves and some waterproof wellies or walking boots.

Where to meet?
There is a main car park in Oxhey Woods near the start of the sculpture trail, which is where we will meet you before heading off into the woods.
