I loved the mix of practical, technical skill-learning and free creative tasks. What really stood out was being given the opportunity to be creative, in my own way and without judgment. I also had a lot of fun playing and learning a lot of new group games.
I liked that sometimes we would have very physical games and energisers then sometimes we'd be more controlled, learning to use tools, carefully making mallets. Sometimes then communicative exercises, discussing theories of learning or very quiet contemplative exercises with a creative outlet.
