Spend the day in the woods. Arrival is Saturday 9th April at 10am and departure at 4pm.
Gather round the fire in the morning time for a cup of hot brew, then explore the bluebell woods on a walkabout.
Take part in a wood carving activity (spoon making) Learn how to use a carving knife safely & effectively. Be shown chopping, carving & shaping techniques and create your own spoon to take home. Wood carving requires patience and is a creative skill that can turn into a very meditative activity. Time goes by when you immerse yourself into creating something out of nothing. They'll also be outdoor activities to take part in such as a foraging nature hunt (Tree/Plant/Fungi ID) or nature arts & crafts.
You'll also have the opportunity to practise archery and shoot arrows into a target. Try your luck in our shooting competition, highest score wins a pack of marshmallows & screwers to toast over the fire.
This experience is self-catered so please bring a picnic, personal packed lunches, fruit or any extra snacks to sustain you throughout the day. We'll have some treats by the fire side.
