Bespoke events

Fire by friction

Stop press: 2019 is shaping up to be a sabbatical year. There may still be a few opportunities for private events though so please do get in touch if you have an enquiry.

Birthday party, team building day, stag and hen do or simply a group of friends wanting to learn some new skills- I'm always happy to deliver a tailor made package.

Of course, not all topics need to be covered but here's an idea of what you could choose from:
  • Wild food and plant medicine
  • Tree identification
  • Fire lighting skills, including fire by friction
  • Shelter building
  • Animal tracks and sign
  • Campfire cooking
  • Lightweight camping, including bashas and hammocks
It's always best to email or call to discuss your personal needs and budget but below is a basic guide to costs: 
Half day private tuition (4 hours of instruction and around 4 hours of prep, set up and pack down) : £140 per group* + travel expenses.
Full day private tuition (8 hours of instruction and around 6 hours of prep, set up and pack down: £190 per group* + travel expenses.
If you have a location, I can come to you, otherwise I have contacts in Dorset and Devon. Depending on the group, I may also need to hire an assistant instructor. Over-night sessions are also possible- and loads of fun!
For Wild food, the normal investment is £35 an hour (minimum of 2 hours) this includes a few samples prepared beforehand plus, depending on time, an impromptu cook up in the field of whatever is in season. If you are an individual or a small group, this is an excellent way of gaining confidence as we can go at your own pace and look at the plants specific to your area.
