Woodcraft Folk Assembly

Event date: 
8 July 2016 - 7:00pm - 10 July 2016 - 1:00pm
Event location: 
Youlbury Scout Activity Centre, Boars Hill, Oxford OX1 5HD

As an experiment, this year we are splitting the traditional Annual Gathering into a less formal Folk Assembly in July and a formal AGM in September.

This years Folk Assembly will be at the Youlbury Scout Centre in Oxford from the 8-10 July. It will be a gathering of Woodcraft Folk members from all over the country where we'll share skills, discuss the things that matter to us and enjoy each others company.

The informal gathering will consist of several strands:

  • Discussions and skill-sharing
  • Training and structured worshops
  • Open space facilitated by the DFs
  • Community Space and Cafe 

Help shape your Folk Assembly

This is your Folk Assembly - let us know what you want to get out of it. Hundreds of Woodies in one place for a weekend without the constraints of formal business presents a huge opportunity. Should we run the whole weekend as an Open Space? Or a mix of structured and unstructured programme.

What do you want to discuss, share, learn about? What can you offer? A workshop, games, entertainment...
