This Bushcraft 101 is specifically for those who would like to start learning Bushcraft. You don’t need to have any prior practical Bushcraft knowledge to attend, just come with the enthusiasm to learn and a desire to have fun outdoors.
Whittling and Woodcraft
During the Whittling and WoodCraft course you will learn about the trees and the properties of their wood, before harvesting some and then carving beautiful and functional utensils such as spoons and other woodland crafts.
Fire and Feast
On the Fire and Feast course you will learn the art of making good meals over a campfire with the aim of encouraging resourcefulness and less reliance on modern gadgetry.
The Art of Fire
What better time of year to hone your fire lighting skills? This Art of Fire course will teach you how to be proficient at lighting fires what ever the weather and using a variety of methods. Whilst we will be using flint and steel, wire wool and batteries to name but a few, we will be devoting much of the day to fire-by-friction and making your own bow-drill set to take home.
Campfire Bread Baking
Now who doesn’t like freshly baked bread? On the Campfire Bread Baking course you will be making traditional yeasted breads and other breads such as bannock, flat breads and ash cakes all over a campfire – be prepared to enjoy lots of freshly baked bread and of course take some home too!
This Bushcraft experience is aimed at families with young children (there is no minimum age). It is all about having fun in the woods; learning about campfires, and keeping safe, baking bread, foraging in the woods, crafts and games that will help connect your family more closely with nature.

Join a guided Woodland Walk in the Chilterns and learn about the woods, the flora and fauna. These walks are family friendly, following tracks and paths that are generally buggy friendly and fine for young children to explore. They are slow-paced walks of approximately 1½ hours.
