In addition to the always-popular holiday bushcraft club for children, on the third Saturday of each month the outdoor learning experience group, Wild Thyme & Embers, is now offering the chance to explore the natural world through the skills of bushcraft together as a family. Construct shelters, cook on an open fire, whittle feather sticks and butter knives, and practice primitive fire-building techniques in these immensely satisfying and rewarding sessions. A great opportunity for quality family time while learning some essential traditional outdoor skills – perfect for both the budding and mature outdoorsperson alike.
