IT MEANS MOTHER NATURE.

AND IT’S TRUE.

Winter creative workshops in Nature Park in Tērvete are coming to a close

In LVM Nature Park in Tērvete in February – also known as Candle month – pre-school age children and 1st and 2nd grade students got to know the different nature of darkness and light in the environmental creative workshops.

The fearless explorers of darkness and light in the Dwarfs’ Cottage were invited by dwarf family to work in the woodworking workshop, where the little nature friends in a guidance of Dwarf Daddy and Dwarf Aunt were making wax candles and learned secret forest wits – what grows in forest and what can be made out of it, what can we do in woodworking workshop and how to tend a forest.

Dwarfs had prepared a dark room where children met dwarfs’ guest – the mysterious Cat. The playful Cat invited to sneak around the dark room, very, very quietly, to listen to the sounds of forest animals and made shadow puppet theatre. The diversity of light was observed in the colourful light game, because human with his eyes sees only that part of light, which is called the visible spectrum. But darkness. What is darkness? Darkness is a lack of light in the visible spectrum, and it is felt by everyone – young and old nature friends.

But with Dwarf Daughter in the Dwarfery (“Rūķotava”) children got to know the natural sources of light – the brightness of Sun, twinkling of stars, the power of lightning flashes, the light created by volcano lava and other. And what was the surprise when they learnt that the Moon does not create a light, but only reflects the light coming from the Sun! Each object, each ordinary thing hides a little secret.

The last month of the winter was spent with a story about darkness and light – about always changing, about ordinary, but yet not known. When mornings become brighter, each day we can feel the victory of light over darkness, it also the time when creative workshop’s season approaches the end. Only the Easter environmental creative workshops with its spring colours and works are ahead.

Easter creative workshops will begin on 10 April and will continue until the 13 April. For more information about the environmental creative workshops and to make a reservation call +371 63726212 or +371 28309394.
