Story, Craft & Tradition in Outdoor Education

Have fun and engage in hands-on learning about one of our most beautiful
native trees. Authors and storytellers Allison Galbraith and Alette
Willis will be joined by RBGE staff for this workshop centred around the
seasonal Scottish Traveller’s tale, Archie’s Besom. Hear some folktales,
learn about the cultural and medicinal uses of birch and make your own
besom (traditional broom) for your Halloween celebrations. This workshop
will provide a participatory example of how traditional storytelling can
be used in outdoor, environmental and science education. Suitable for
educators and anyone 12+ interested in trees and folk culture. Broom making
materials will be provided.
