Natureweavers seasonal holiday programs are infamous throughout SE Queensland. Allow your children to re-wild on their holidays, experiencing the simple freedom of playing and learning in, with and from nature.

Next Program: Autumn

Wild Kids: Monday 4 April – Friday 8 April

Whittlers Guild: Monday 4 April

Wild Apprentices: Tuesday 5 April



Natureweavers is an award winning forest school on the Sunshine Coast, and we welcome all children aged 4-16 years to come and experience our forest school offerings during the holidays. Children will play and learn in wildspace, in tune with the natural rhythm of the season, the day and themselves.

Natureweavers programs are inspired by seasonal ecologies – the elemental associations of the season. Autumn is EARTH – rocks and minerals; seeds and soils; leaves and berries. We shall explore the peace and the power of EARTH in this holiday program. Children will learn how to find, harvest and use clay, ochre and earth pigments; explore earth-based herbal medicine; discover what to plant in the garden in autumn; learn wilderness awareness techniques for deep nature connection; and share in the autumn equinox  celebrations.

The Whittlers Guild shall also gather at Natureweavers in Autumn. This session is for new and experienced whittlers. The Whittlers Guild session is for children aged 8+ only.

The Wild Apprentices shall also come together for their Autumn Gathering. Wild Apprentices are those who would like to know more about wild foraging, plant energies and medicine making. The Wild Apprentices is also for children aged 8+ only.

We welcome Natureweavers, new and old, to the Autumn  Holiday Program.

Weekly Earth School

“They LOVED spending the day with you, Carly. They always do. Charlie really appreciates how much you trust them to use the knives, etc. It means a lot to him. And how you value and acknowledge their opinions. The boys really do love coming to your workshops. You are true gift to the world and we appreciate all that you do.”
