Primitive Firelighting & Artist Charcoal with Linden Outdoorsman

Saturday 6th July 2024 | 10:00am - 2:00pm

Primitive Firelighting & Artist Charcoal with Linden Outdoorsman

Join Tim, The Linden Outdoorsman, on Saturday 6th July for an unforgettable adventure in primitive fire making and artists charcoal creation. Learn the ancient art of starting a fire using flint and steel, as well as the technique of friction fire with a bow drill, we will use a selection of natural tinders just like our ancestors. Once our fire is roaring, we’ll use it to make our own artists charcoal in our Kadai Charcoal Burner using Willow rods that we will prepare together.
While the charcoal burner is on, you can relax by the fire with a cup of coffee, tea or maybe a foraged brew and indulge in some freshly cooked skillet bannock bread drizzled in honey.
Afterward, you’ll have free time to soak in the inspiration of nature in the beautiful prairie garden for an afternoon of drawing and creativity.

Price is £65pp

      Wonderful garden well worth a visit. Great variety of plants showing so many ways of portraying a garden layout. Must comment on the great tea and cakes selection, our dog loved the doggy ice cream!

      Beautifully planted area, in which you are encouraged to walk along paths between the plants so can be completely surrounded by foliage - a lovely effect.
