"RURAL SKILLS THERAPY - I really enjoyed the Coppice Products Course. It gave me so much confidence and fulfilment. I would like to further these skills and take them in to a working environment as quickly as possible."
The Cart Shed - Therapeutic activities in a safe supportive environment…
At the Cart Shed, we believe that being involved with nature has benefits for everyone.
It is about enjoying being outdoors; making a fire and sitting quietly by it, chatting with other participants, enjoying the sounds of the birds, the wind, the smells of the blue bells in spring, the wet leaves in autumn, cutting hazel and making beautiful things.
Learning new skills at any age gives each of us a sense of achievement. Being more in our bodies and less in our heads has a balancing effect – creating pieces of artwork, contemplating beautiful landscapes, the smell, sound and touch of our natural surroundings… all help us to find our ‘other self’ the self which is often lost in a world of computers, i-phones and the pressures of modern living.
It does not matter if you are a highly successful businessman, or someone who has struggled to cope with the pressures of life, weather you have had a career break or have yet to decide what you would like to do in life, we offer a wide range of activities for all ages and abilities - have a look at our courses page for something to inspire you!
