Hello, I’m Katherine your Nature Makers provider for North of Tyne!
I live with my husband and son, whose favourite things to do are ‘go outside’ and ‘do making’. We are almost always muddy, wet, windswept, sticky or covered in paint and we share our house with an ever growing collection of pine cones, stones, sticks and other natural treasures.
I have always loved being outdoors but exploring with my son and seeing him discover things for the first time has brought me a whole new level of joy. It’s wonderful to see him developing a deep connection with our natural world and he talks about how it makes him happy and calm.
I’m a fully qualified teacher with 20 years experience of working with children across the age and ability range.
Children thrive when they are free to explore and express themselves, and I was immediately drawn to Nature Makers as a way to facilitate rich, exciting learning opportunities in a sustainable way, whilst nurturing the whole child and promoting good mental health for all.
It has never been so important that children experience and connect with the natural world, both for their wellbeing and the future of Planet Earth.
I’m incredibly excited to be bringing Nature Makers to the North East and look forward to sharing my love of nature and getting crafty with as many little people and their families as possible.
I am currently training and will be delivering classes in the next few months. If you want to join the waiting list to be told about classes in this area then email here.
