Family Bushcraft Camp (2 day)
Two days of fun and memorable experiences. Learn effective fire-lighting and bushcraft skills, build and sleep in your own shelter, greenwood carving skills, campfire cooking (food included), nature walk and storytelling. Specifically aimed at families, all ages welcome.
Bench and Stool Making
Make a rustic greenwood bench or simple stool using hand tools. Your bench or stool will be ready to take home and will look fantastic indoors or out.
Use traditional greenwood techniques to carve your own spoon. Learn about the form and function of a good spoon and how to make the most of the wood for strength and beauty.
Make your own Shave Horse
In an evening! The shave horse is a wonderfully versatile piece of equipment for working in greenwood. It is used to grip the length of wood you are working on and hold it steady to enable you to shape the wood using a draw knife or a spokeshave.
Scandinavian Shrink Pot Carving
Creating beautiful natural pots from greenwood, using the shrinkage of the tree as it dries out to create a sealed pot.
Hand carve your own bowl or kneading trough from local greenwood. A busy day will be rewarded when your creation takes pride of place in your kitchen.

The days will be an inspiring mix of bushcraft, whittling, fire lighting, natural arts and crafts, animal tracking, woodland games, storytelling, adventure and sleeping out under the stars.
Bushcraft Skills Development
A jam packed day learning fire lighting techniques including friction fire lighting with a bow drill, green wood carving, animal tracking signs, natural cordage and cooking campfire treats.
