- Private woodland in Great Hampden, near Princes Risborough
You'll learn how our ancestors made invaluable strings for tying their packs, clothes, camp furniture, and for fishing with. We'll look at some examples of cords made from nettles, brambles, willow, cedar and chestnut. We'll gather stinging nettles, process them down into fibres and then twist them into a cordage that can be used as a bracelet, necklace, or anything else you fancy. I'll show you how to make natural beads from the elder tree and thread these onto your cordage as decoration. Then you can take the finished product home and wear it proudly! A fun and relaxing way to connect with nature in the woods. Priced per person for adults and children 8+ Children under 8 are free (just book 1 place for the adult). They might struggle to perform the twisting technique to make the cordage but you're welcome to bring and supervise them. The woodland kettle will be simmering all day with tea, coffee and water provided. There's parking on site and a composting loo as well. This is a private tuition woodland experience for 1-5 people (priced per person). PLEASE ENQUIRE FOR DATES TO SUIT YOU
