Fire Cooking

16th September – 21st October

The Community farm gives us access to wonderful ingredients straight from the soil; fire cooking using seasonal organic ingredients will be a real treat. Learn to cook healthy simple meals that you can also repeat at home on a conventional cooker. These will include handmade pizzas in the cob oven, quesadillas and curries, flatbreads and stews.

Lakeside Woodcraft

4th November – 9th December

Wood carving for adults in a beautiful location, to support your wellbeing. Come and gain knife skills and confidence with a range of techniques. You will have the chance to whittle small items such as small ornaments (spirals), nature inspired carvings (small trees, mushrooms) or just create something artistic in the wood as you wish.

3rd July – 7th August Woodland Wild Art 

Using just natural materials in the environment around us we will be trying out some wonderful natural art. 

Losing ourselves in an absorbing artistic practice is always relaxing, and being in the woodland environment with other people, making a cuppa on the fire or kelly kettles, and going home with a photo of your ephemeral art you will feel a sense of peace and the restorative benefits of the natural world. Ephemeral means temporary – after we leave it will change it along with the living world around it. This practice was done by buddhist monks to and helps us be mindfully present in what we’re doing, without attachment to what happens next. Its a useful mental tool for life too.

 

 

                              

 

11th September – 16th October Woodland Foraging Walks.

We will mostly be collecting sweet chestnuts and blackberries, but may find other treats such as mushrooms and cob nuts. We will stop to boil the kelly kettle, chat and enjoy the autumnal views. If wet we may erect a shelter for our break.

 

8th January – 12th Feb Fire Cooking

Learn to manage the heat of the fire to cook a variety of delicious meals and snacks.
