Spend a day in the woods learning how to light a fire without matches, use tools, and cook a tasty lunch on the fire.
On arrival, after a welcoming cup of tea or coffee, we will take the short 5 minute walk into the woods where we will be based for the day. We will start by learning which trees to look for when choosing firewood, and how best to prepare the firewood for a good fire, including use of various tools.
We’ll then look at how to light a fire, before you build and light your own fire. With the fire burning, we’ll start to prepare lunch or dinner, using fresh seasonal ingredients in their natural form. Fresh vegetables, fresh fish or meat.
With food cooking, there’s time to learn some basic whittling and pyrography skills to make a gift to take away, before tucking into your homemade tasty meal.
