Welcome To Common Threads!
Common Threads has been supporting the playwork field for over twenty years. Still operating as a social enterprise, Common Threads continues to develop and promote playwork practice internationally through innovative training and publications.
What Is Playwork?
The practice of playwork originated in adventure playgrounds, created in the middle of the twentieth century to provide children’s spaces within urban environments.
PARS is the first ever model of playwork practice, grounded in the original philosophy of the adventure playground pioneers.
