Maybe it’s those trees that have been given a second life to provide the sensory and tactile pleasures of a cricket bat, a wooden spoon, or a piece of furniture?

Family Bushcrafts
Family event

Build a shelter, light a fire, cook a meal, make something to take away. You’ll need to build a shelter, your own den in the woods. You’re going to eat so you’ll build and light your own camp fire (but no matches!). You’ll cook your food and then sitting round the fire you can have a go at making an elder-wood pea-shooter. Eat before you arrive and bring your own food to BBQ over your fire. The activity leader, Bruce Ferguson, is qualified through the Institute for Outdoor Learning to teach bushcrafts to groups and has been involved in bushcrafts and teaching woodland skills for over 30 years. All our leaders are DBS checked.
