What activities will I take part in?
Our women's wellbeing days are all about women coming together to support each other, and connect with nature. You will get to learn some bushcraft skills such as traditional fire-lighting and whittling, cooking on open fires and foraging. Each session we will also be teaching new art techniques and exploring some creative skills that are accessible to all. Everyone can choose what they would like to do, so there's no requirement to any of the activities. You'll also get to meet some great new people and join our Women of the woods community!
How do I join, or refer someone?
Our sessions are free to join and attend.
