Creative den making

These are a few images of the dens some groups have made with me.

Dens offer fantastic opportunities for learning – they can combine: a place to hide, tell stories, be private, show work, develop construction skills, collaborate, explore materials, use proper tools, design, enjoy being outdoors (though we’ve made indoor ones too), study nature, be in contact with the weather, look at global / historical architecture and geography…

I believe they are so successful and universal because they tap into our primal instinct to create shelter and sanctuary.
