Here's great inspiration for connecting nature with family crafting at home. Using materials foraged from outdoors, we learn to create inspiring art, accessories and gifts. The no-fuss projects use step-by-step photos, with one project for each week of the year.

Amazon Customer Review

I was looking forward to receiving this book for ages. I love crafting with my kids and this sounded like a great book to work through with them. We're trying to cut down on our craft materials and this is a lovely excuse to get outside and craft with things which can be found easily. Although I've made some of the crafts before there are plenty of new ones to try! Projects range from a leaf mobile to a floral lampshade, seed balls and walnut wreath.

Postcard Reviews

For this year, at least, crafting has become a popular pastime, as more and more of us try to fill our time with meaningful and enjoyable pastimes. This book of crafting from nature, not only allows us to have free use of what's available in our gardens and green space, but it also gives us a wide range of beautiful things to make and display in our homes.

Like nature, this book gives four sections. Summer, Spring, Autumn and Winter. I adored the Winter Twig Letters, a brilliant idea and so simple and beautiful.

You will need some other items to make your projects, but each one comes with a list of the things you will need, along with a step-by-step picture tutorial. The collection of ideas gives you a good reason to forage for leaves, feathers, acorns and so on. It really is a brilliant craft book to have on your shelf. The inspiration pours from the pages and you will be able to create your own unique style of craft to display or gift.


Weekly ideas for when your MOJO has gone walkabout!

This is a lovely little book by Barbora, published by the ever reliable Search Press. I am with the u3a and this will be lovely to connect with members on a weekly basis. It is great to do something crafty with many of us confined to home. It has a weekly craft with a list of tools and materials and, if you haven't the exact items, substitutions can be made. I'm looking forward to doing a craft outside of my comfort zone!

Amazon Customer Review

I absolutely love this book, we have been eagerly waiting for it to arrive and it did last week. The first thing we did was flick through and bookmark which crafts we wanted to try. We chose some of the Autumn and Winter crafts; pine cone angel's, leaf crown and pine cone decorations. We went for a walk and found all the bits we needed really easily on our usual routes. There is nothing in here that isn't easy to get hold of and my daughter really enjoyed looking for the bits and pieces we needed.

Amazon Customer Review

This is a lovely book. Beautifully photographed with clear instructions and ideal for getting all ages involved. Most of all it gives inspiration to do more. Love that it has sections for the four seasons.
