Join us for a weekend of woodland explorations on our Wild Camp at Tortworth Arboretum, South Gloucestershire in autumn.
This weekend is designed to support you to gain skills and confidence camping, learn about woodland plants and how to stay safe, and have a few useful bushcraft skills under your belt. Bec and her team are experienced woodlanders who have a passion for plants and heritage crafts. Bec is a qualified ethnobotanist, with a certificate in Advanced Bushcraft from The Woodcraft School, and years of experience teaching, working and living in the woods.
We welcome all women who want to try out or practice outdoor knowledge and skills in a non-competitive, supportive environment.
This weekend is all about those skills and experiences you gain from thriving in a woodland, learning how to read the landscape, how to experience a deep connection to nature through living among it and using your hands to create.
A simple soup and bread is provided on Friday evening but you will need to bring your own food and water for the remaining meals. We have a communal fire on which you can cook your food.
We will join together on Friday evening and set up camp, and Saturday we will gather for walks and workshops in the roundhouse. You will leave on Sunday before lunch with a set of new skills and a lingering essence of woodsmoke in your hair.
Join our community of women, push the boundaries of your abilities, learn new skills and see how resilient you are!
We welcome all people who identify as women.
Workshops will include all materials and teaching.
