Summer Garden Project
Project Category: Registered charity
Summer Programme at Bilton Hall Community Trust
Williby Rocs provide Eco Arts and Crafts to children, families, community groups and adults.We use environmentally friendly, recyclable, pre-loved and woodland materials to deliver events, parties, workshops, after school clubs and education sessions.
Here at Williby Roc’s we aim to release children’s potential for creation and resourcefulness using reclaimed waste and natural materials from the world around us.
We are passionate about arts and crafts and we also care about our environment and the world we live in. This seemed like a perfect opportunity to create Williby Roc’s and start empowering children to be more confident and sustainable within their communities while releasing their potential to become independent learners and crafters.
Our sessions have a friendly and relaxed feel and the children are encouraged and supported to craft freely and follow their own creative interests. We celebrate the seasons and our sessions and materials reflect the seasonal bounty of nature.
