 “Go out in the woods, go out. If you don’t go out in the woods nothing will ever happen and your life will never begin.” -Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés

Rediscover the wild woman inside you. The world of “bushcraft” can often be dominated by men, and although well intentioned, for some can feel exclusive and intimidating.

Here, we are offering a safe space for women to step forward and invite you to push into your edges and try things you always wanted to, but never felt you could. Our aim is to give you the encouragement and confidence you need to learn new skills discover what you are capable of!

Under the skilled and experienced guidance of our team, we invite you to learn wood chopping, fire lighting, whittling, wild crafts, and cooking over a fire. Come and delve into your curiosities, sleep under the stars and sing!

We will balance the teaching of new skills with a deep respect and connection with nature and a focus on creating a village between us as a supportive community of women. Sharing stories and songs in a beautiful ancient beech woodland setting.

*Open to everyone who identifies as female or non-binary.
