Monday 14 December – Friday 18 December 2020

Monday 11 January – Friday 22 January 2021


This summer, give your children the ultimate gift of nature at the Natureweavers Summer Holiday Program.

Natureweavers is an award winning forest school on the Sunshine Coast, and we welcome all children aged 2-16 years to come and experience our forest school 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. Summer is WATER, SHADE and COOL. We shall explore the wonders of water; the power of solar; and the solace of shade. Children will learn how to harvest and utilise water in the landscape; water-based herbal medicine; microclimate gardening; wilderness awareness techniques for keeping cool; water-based earth arts including ink making and wet felting; boat making & water play; and summer solstice celebrations.

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

Weekly Earth School

Sacred & Seasonal


Natureweavers Weekly Earth School is for children aged 3-16 years. We gather Tuesdays – Fridays during term time.  Children learn bushcraft skills, permaculture design, herbal medicine, earth arts, indigenous wisdoms and enjoy the simple pleasure of learning in, with and from nature.

Natureweavers Sacred and Seasonal sessions are for people aged 14+ years. Seasonal gatherings offer us an opportunity to tune in to the sacred rhythm of the earth and be provided with practices to inspire a deeper connection to nature.

“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.”
