Seedheads form the basis of Exploring Nature and are integral to most of my workshops. As a child I was fascinated with the structure and beauty of seed heads and wanted to create workshops that educated children in a non formal way. Working in an environment surrounded by nature is incredibly theraputic and children enter "the zone" a place of calm, which is so removed from everyday life these days. The beauty of these workshops is that children don't even realise that they are learning.
Following the curriculum
I also work with school children at a childrens nature education centre, this helps me to keep up to date with the school curriculum. With this work and the many years working with children at different events, I have an instinctive rapport with them and am able to tailor my workshops to the age and learning ability of the child.
