This book serves as a genuine companion for woodland enthusiasts, and I can personally guarantee that it will enhance the enjoyment, understanding, and 'feeling' for our woods and woodcrafts for any learner. Happy 'crafting and creating.' Jon Cree, Chair of the Forest School Association and Forest School Training Coordinator

Woodland Crafting leads readers through the art of crafting with wood in the great outdoors, featuring a collection of exquisite hand-drawn illustrations. Offering fundamental knowledge and skills, it enables the completion of a variety of craft projects, ranging from simple structures to more intricate outdoor play creations. The book teaches effective wood selection and manipulation, the use of basic tools, knot tying, and the development of original designs for crafting masks, puppets, night torches, staffs, arrows, jewelry, ladders, shelters, stargazing chairs, and much more. This comprehensive guide ensures that working with wood becomes an enjoyable and fulfilling experience.

Previously published as 'Making Woodland Crafts,' this book is the ideal companion for any family's outdoor day, providing a delightful introduction to the crafts found in woodland settings. It is guaranteed to inspire children (as well as their parents, siblings, and grandparents) to venture outdoors and appreciate nature. Patrick Harrison, an experienced outdoor learning educator and Forest School Leaders trainer, as well as a skilled illustrator, crafted this book from years of working and playing with both adults and children in woodlands. His passion lies in fostering children's love and respect for nature through crafts and outdoor learning.

‘A feast for the eye and the soul, for the imagination too. Every new page will lead you outdoors to forage, collect, make, and do. This is a book for the budding Swallow or Amazon.’ David Bond, Project Wild Thing, from the Foreword

‘It is the type of book you want to share, but be warned; you may end up buying for someone and then keeping it for yourself, it is that good!’ Martine Horvath, reviewing ‘Making Woodland Crafts’ in EYE volume 16, no 10
