Come and take advantage of these four free events for parents, teachers and early years workers. Every Friday from 3.30pm - 5pm we are revisiting some of Robert Owen's principles in a new light through informal chat as we explore ways to nurture a joy of learning. And there's more...while you are here, children aged 4 to 8 can take part in FREE creative workshops in drama, music, nature craft and wild play. Places are limited - see the separate booking details here.

The schedule for the adult workshops are as follows:

Friday 21 April: Be inspired by Sue Palmer, author of Toxic Childhood, 21st Century Boys and Upstart as she invites us to think about global trends that help and hinder children's natural love of learning.

Friday 28 April and Friday 5 May: With a background in music, teaching and education for equity, Gary Walsh will facilitate informal discussions on the role of character, casting new light on an ancient idea once favoured by Robert Owen.

Friday 12 May: In this final session we put all of the ideas discussed over the previous sessions into practice as we bring adults and children together to enjoy an interactive wild play session in the woods at Lanark Racecourse.

The sessions are all introduced by Ian and Tila from Catch the Light - both local parents, with a background in youth and community development who make sure there is a fun and relaxed environment for you to take part.

Book here. Don't delay in taking advantage of this one-off opportunity thanks to fantastic funding from Big Lottery, Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership, Heritage Lottery, New Lanark Trust and a private donation from the Cullen family in memory of George Cullen.
