RRP $7.95

Building Adirondack furniture is a time-honored craft. Sturdy and rustic, this furniture can be a beautiful addition to any indoor decor, although it's most often used to set the scene outdoors. There, the furniture is subjected to a lifetime of abuse. Yearly it moves from somewhere hidden away (probably dark and musty winter storage) to front-and-center on the summer stage. Now, hour after hour it is beaten on by intense UV light, drenched in driving rains, then fried again in the summer sun.

Through it all, the furniture patiently endures--ever handsome, ever inviting, ever lasting. To survive summertime abuse and the semiannual ritual of being dragged into and out of storage, outdoor furniture must be sturdy, rugged, and well built--all qualities that epitomize Adirondack pieces.

This bulletin contains instructions for building an Adirondack chair, matching footstool, companion side table, and Westport chair (an ancestor of the modern-day slatted Adirondack chair). Each project will take the moderately skilled carpenter less than a day to fabricate; for the beginner, maybe a weekend.
Learn how to choose the right lumber and hardware, complete with instructions for table, footstool, and the Westport chair.

The outdoor environment is now an integral part of many early years settings and schools, but is it being used to its full potential?

Providing extensive, challenging and ever-changing outdoor play experiences is an essential and valuable aspect of early years education. This book offers comprehensive guidance on how the outdoor environment can be used to teach and challenge all children across a range of settings drawing on forest school practice.

Following a month-by-month format, each chapter provides a selection of theme-related play experiences alongside planning and evaluations of how the ideas described were carried out, and reveals the impact that they had on the children. Including detailed information on the role of the adult, the environment, planning and using children's interests to guide their learning and development, the book features:

    • over 100 full-colour photographs to illustrate practice

    • diary entries that reflect how the planning was delivered, what changes were made and how aspects of learning were recorded and assessed

    • examples of practice as well as comprehensive resource lists and safety guidelines

    • links to indoor play and opportunities at home.

Written by a leading authority on forest school practice and full of practical ideas that can be adapted to suit individual children's needs, this book aims to inspire practitioners to make the most of the outdoor environment throughout the year.
