Women in the Woods

Come and join us for a bushcraft session in the woods just for women. We are friendly, relaxed and accepting group. No previous knowledge or experience required.

Based in a lovely private woodlands, we always have the kettle on. There is talking, laughing and sharing alongside bushcraft activities such as fire lighting, weaving, knife work, archery and camp fire cooking. We’ve also got some ambitious projects for us to get our teeth into. Alternatively you can wile away an hour or so in the hammock.

The sessions are designed to provide you with a relaxed and soothing experience where joy can be found in learning lovely new skills and being together with a wonderful group of women. At Discover Bushcraft we view these sessions as part of our keep fit and self-care regimes. Great for a bit of ‘me’ time, being yourself and taking a few hours out of the ‘normal’ week.

WHEN: First Friday of the month 12.00pm – 4.00pm

WHERE: A woodland about 5 minute drive from Thaxted

COST: £18.00 per person including VAT.  Please contact us for discretionary reduced rate based on circumstances

We will provide comfortable chairs, shelter from the elements, civilised ‘facilities’ and a crackling wood fire. Activities will include fire lighting skills, camp fire cooking, foraging, knife work, nature based stress management workshop and other nature based crafts and skills.  There will be good company and conversation in a supportive, kind and inclusive group.

These types of groups can have a powerful positive impact, helping to manage stress and anxiety, improve self-esteem and confidence.  We will have fun, there will be laughter.  The woods will work their magic and you will feel yourself unwind.
