Mud Monsters: A playful approach to working with children and families

In this masterclass you'll explore the concepts of playfulness and enchantment with the aim of understanding why this is important within working with children and families.

You'll have the opportunity to be playful with voice, storytelling and natural art, and you'll learn how to respond to the individual needs of participants and the environment. Weather permitting this session will take place outside.

** NB. The reduction will be applied on application. Points cannot be redeemed retrospectively if you have already applied to the university; they can only be redeemed against University of Cumbria courses linked to the masterclass.
