Woodwork in the early years

by Pete Moorhouse

"It is more important than ever for the new generation to be able to think creatively and develop problem-solving skills. Woodwork exercises such skills as children make their own choices and learn through trial and error. It sparks creative thinking and imagination, qualities that are at least as important in our changing world as the practical skills gained."

In this resource, artist and educator Pete Moorhouse outlines the basics of woodworking in the early years, taking it from its historical context and applying it in today's nurseries and early years settings, with many invaluable tips and guidelines along the way.
