Summer Bushcraft Courses

The day long family Bushcraft courses that we will be runing from next week through the summer holidays have been really popular, with only a few spaces left on the 25th August. We shall be running one in the autumn too , dates to be confirmed.

We have added a Cornish Lobster Pot making course with Dave Drew to our autumn programme (17th Oct). Even if you don' live near the sea , have no boat and no possible chance of using the lobster pot they are beautiful objects that capture the spirit of a not so distant past where we were more capable at living with just the natural resources at our fingertips.The skills learnt on this course can be adapted to make other items, but the pot in itself is a wonderful piece of real craft.

The Berry Picking Basket making course on the 5th September coincides with the backberry, sloe and other wild fruits season. It is a day long course and is a very good introduction to basket making.

Both courses cost £35.
