Our PARTS PODs are collections of multi-affordance ‘variables’, more commonly known as “Loose Parts” or even “Curated Junk“.

“Found” and manufactured loose PARTS offer a huge range of potential skills, and ways of thinking to learners and play-ers of all ages.

Play is an essential part of health and well being, developing cognition, physical ability and consolidating a broad variety of thinking styles and learning outcomes.

In an effort to re-create the sense of creative wonder and potential experienced by generations of children who accompanied their parents to the local rubbish tip or shared extended time with other children in disused urban spaces, Green Hat Workshop Facilitators have curated PARTS in order to provide a range of weight, volume, density, shapes and textures to encourage a range of multi-age play-types.

PLANKS are dynamic building blocks designed to inspire creative minds. Totally inclusive, PLANKS encourage a wonderful mix of creativity and skill, social development and imagination.

The flexibility of our PLANKS’ rectangular prism shape and Green Hat Workshop’s philosophy of self directed, play-based learning, provides opportunities for all abilities to participate and to challenge themselves at their own level, enabling participants to simply stack towers of impressive height or to create sophisticated cantilever bridges, 3D shapes and more.

Green Hat PLANKS Workshops offer an abundance of PLANKS, promoting the opportunity to share and celebrate diverse expressions of creativity, Mathematics, Engineering, interpersonal skills and resilience.
