Wellness & Workshops at Tribe Norfolk Weekend
We want your Tribe Norfolk Weekend to be as experiential as possible - an opportunity to make memories that will last a lifetime. We have some wonderful workshops for you and your family to enjoy…. grab your tickets now!
The Twiggle Team from BeWILDerwood will be at Tribe Norfolk festival again with some of your favourite curious characters from the woods. Expect games, giggles, storytelling and crafting in true BeWILDerwood style! Fabulous, family fun.
Grown ups and children can have fun learning how to turn old clothes and fabric scraps into simple and effective jewellery. With a focus on limiting the waste involved in sewing/clothes making, all of the buttons, beads, ribbon, feathers and tassels that can be added to the handmade jewellery are remnants/second hand or made from second hand materials. This is a fantastic and very easy way to up-cycle, reuse, renew, reinvent, and get crafty whatever your age and skill level (with the added bonus of getting a lovely sense of satisfaction from making something with your own two hands!). No skills or experience necessary.
Workshop duration: Approx 30 - 45 mins
Cost: £3.50 per person or £12.50 for a group/family of 4 . No need to book; pay (cash only) on the day.
Ages: Most suitable for age 5 years upwards (younger siblings are very welcome to come and join in under the supervision of their parents/guardians but may need extra help making their jewellery). All children up to the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
Emily will be returning to Tribe Norfolk Weekend 2019 with her hip hop and reggae yoga for all ages. Pre-booking will be available soon and we recommend securing your space (classes are free but spaces limited) and there may be opportunity for drop-ins on the day.
Mumma Wolf is a project which aims to empower families through yoga, mindfulness and a connection with nature. Working with Tribe Norfolk, we've created a yoga experience for all little people and families: short bursts of yogic story-telling, free for all families throughout the day, surrounded by the sighing stream and whispering willows of a magical little island nestled right in the heart of Happy Valley. For calm, for fun and for connection.
Come to our stand and write on our wellness tea leaves the things that make you feel good and cheer you up. Add them to our giant teabag to create your own wellness blend. You will take away a mini version to remind you of the things that can give you a daily boost to your mental wellness. Managing how we feel is like making a good cup of tea, it’s all about the blend of ingredients – we all have different preferences for tea and we all have different ways to support ourselves when we feel low. This workshop is suitable for ages 10+. The workshop is run by Cup-O-T: Wellness and Therapy Services, a non-profit organisation that provides mental health Occupational Therapy to young people and adults in Norfolk. Our workshop is free of charge however a small donation would be appreciated to enable us to continue our work.
Feathers Futures Community Interest Company was set up to empower and enable women to make positive choices about their futures. We have a base in Great Yarmouth where women over the age of 18 are welcome to come and access support, build confidence, resilience and reduce isolation. Currently there are around 50 women accessing our workshops and courses on offer, as well as our peer support groups. Our aim is to offer that safe, supportive place for women to grow.
We are really excited to be coming to Tribe Norfolk Weekend where we will have some of our cards and pictures on sale as well as some tasters of the courses and workshops we deliver.
