Fancy a wild weekend in the gorgeous Pembroke peninsula, where you can indulge in a range of wild plant workshops, fungi forays, bushcraft skills, wild food cookery and plant dyes and dyeing workshops, while enjoying a comfortable glamping setup, located just a few miles from the beach? You do? Then read on!
This September, from Friday 15th – Sunday 17th, you can explore and immerse yourself in your favourite wild fascinations and interests with three experienced workshop facilitators. These include Steve England, one of Bristol’s best known naturalists, bushcraft and fungi teachers, and Anna Willoughby, who has been foraging, researching and experimenting with wild plants, for food, medicine, and dyes for 20 years.
There is a choice of shared accomadation, in the glamping bell tents and the converted dairy bunkhouise. You also have the option of a group ticket bell tent with no sharing. We can squeeze in a couple of camper vans, and there are very limited ‘bring your own tent’ camping tickets.
A full itinery will be released nearer the date, but the rough timetable includes:
Arrive, welcome and settling in from 5pm. Introductions and evening meal from 6.30pm, and a short bat walk from dusk, where you can listen in on the various species of bats flying around using bat detectors! Relax around the campfires until bed!
After breakfast, and following our health and safety introductions, throw yourself into your chosen wild pleasures that include, plant identification for foragers, fungi forays, bushcraft skills, wild food foraging and harvesting, and cooking with wild foods.
Lunch will be from 1-2 pm, and the hearty evening meal will be from 6.30pm. Once again, a short bat walk will follow at dusk! Then relax around the campfire till bedtime!
After breakfast you can further explore the various bushcraft, foraging and wild cookery options or choose a full days workshop on plant dyes and dyeing.
Lunch is from 1-2pm, and at close from 5pm there is a chance to give us feedback on the weekend.
Bring sturdy boots and clothing for the great British weather, plus anything from homw you fancy. The accomadation is very well provided for, so, its worth enquiring with us before you come, as we are likely to have what you are thinking of bringing!
Information handouts will be provided, and its well worth bringing a notepad and pen, plus a camera to help record your finds.
Children under 16 are welcome, but must be accompanied with a paying adult and be supervised.
Please let us know about any dietary requirements you may have that need catering for.
I look forward to seeing you there!
