Edwardian Woodsman Day

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 If you are looking for something creative, then this day is perfect for you!

This is a very hands on and practical day, helping you not only to reconnect your team back to nature with the ways of our ancestors, but you will also get to take home what craft you make.

Working with our Park Ranger, join Tony – The Edwardian Woodsman for a unique and interesting experience as he shares his knowledge of the natural world and anecdotal tales of his families outdoor heritage. Venture into the woods to harvest craft materials in the traditional way, then relax by the fire whittling away the stresses of modern times.

You will be given the opportunity to learn:

  • Wilderness and survival techniques – lighting fires, shelter building and finding water
  • Woodland skills and craft – learn how to craft functional spoons from recently felled timber
  • Woodland walks – helping you to identify nature’s surprises!

We will provide all materials and equipment for the day, but please make sure you wear suitable clothing and footwear. We are committed to keeping you safe while you work with us. You will be supported by our Green Team, who will give you safety    briefings and the materials, tools and protective clothing (gloves) needed to do the job.
