Women in the Woods

This is an exciting new project funded by Active Essex and CVSU (Community Voluntary Services for Uttlesford).

This is a course for all of you female warriors of modern life. A chance for you to switch off and be yourself.  No demands or expectations of your time and energy.  Come and spend time in the woods learning bushcraft skills or simply relaxing in a hammock in the dappled sunlight.

WHEN: Fridays. 1.30pm – 3.00pm

WHERE: A woodland about 5 minute drive from Thaxted

COST: First session is free, then £8 a session bookable in blocks of 6 weeks.

Send an email to admin@discoverbushcraft.co.uk to sign up for your first free session.

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.
