Wellbeing in Nature: Crafting

Fancy carving your very own spoon or knife? Or maybe you’re up for the challenge of crafting a three-legged stool! Whatever your ambition, we’re here to help you transform green wood into a treasured possession or impressive gift. Under the guidance of our experienced tutors, you’ll learn how to safely use traditional hand tools including a shave horse, drawknives and axes. Greenwood craft is the age-old method of making practical and beautiful objects from freshly cut ‘green’ wood and it’s all part of a present-day drive towards sympathetic conservation and sustainable woodland management.

After a prepared lunch, we will continue to craft, as well as experiencing the woodland through nature immersion activities that will keep you fully occupied. If wandering exploration appeals, well you can do that too. A campfire- under a parachute when weather inclement- tables and seating under an all-weather shelter AND plenty of tea and biscuits throughout, will make this a day to remember.

[All tools and equipment will be provided]

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available throughout and lunch cooked on the open fire will be provided: an opportunity to connect, share and reflect around the fire (please let us know if you have any dietary requirements when booking).

If you would like to book a Crafting experience for your own group (min. 5 people), please contact us to discuss dates.

Cost: £85.00 including hot drinks and cooked lunch. Maximum 10 participants

Starts: 09:30 Ends: 16:00

***Workshop Dates 2022: 12th March, 23rd April, 18th June, 17th September***

Why not consider staying the night before or after the workshop. Staying overnight in our wood will give you a deeper experience of being in nature, taking a dip in the river and enjoying the crystal clear night sky afforded us by our remote location on the foothills of Bodmin Moor. You can hire one of our 5m belltents (with wood burner for the colder months): price for the bell tent is £95.00/night (for up to 4 people). Or you can bring your own tent and camp within our 40-acre woodland: price £10.00/night.
