The Creative Quarter - Family Engagement and Forest School

This year you will find, Toys & Games, Workshops, Arts & Crafts, Demonstrations, Sculpture, Bushcraft, Survival Skills with a twist of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths) all heavily inspired by the Forest School Movement.

We have something to keep the whole family busy and entertained all day as well as programmed workshops, the occasional special appearance or improvised occurrence or if you are just looking for a place to sit, rest or read a book, you are welcome at the Creative Quarter.

Here is just a taster of what we have to offer:

  • Introducing Engineering in the Woods, practical problem solving challenges
  • Pioneer Style Structure and Shelter Building
  • FIRE! Techniques for starting, maintaining and extinguishing a camp fire
  • Cooking on the Fire, demonstration, practice and tasting
  • Natural Art, Pebble Art, Totem Painting and Log Pets
  • The return of the Cold Forming Metal Workshop and Wood Workshop
  • Ade the Face Painting Fairy, Knit and Natter and Bubbly Math

  • The increasingly popular Edible Art and Free Play Clay

All of this and all the other amazing offerings you have come to know and love that helps to make Towersey Festival such a special family occasion.

We are really looking forward to spending time with you experiencing Claydon Estate and helping to make your festival special and memorable.
