Embers Bushcraft is holding two bushcraft weekends at Meon Springs in November for those interested in learning more about outdoor skills.
On Saturday 17 November bushcraft expert Ian Gosling will be running his ‘Fur, Feathers and Fin’ day, which is designed to give people the practical skills in preparing and cooking a variety of locally sourced game and fish including venison.
Visitors will learn how to cook trout over an open fire using a wooden frame, prepare seasonal game birds for an evening stew before skinning and butchering a whole dear.
The following day (Sunday 18 November), Ian’s holding a “Woodland Weaponry Day” where people will be given the opportunity to use longbows, catapults, throwing axes, knives and air rifles. This day is designed to offer a fun and engaging day giving people rare access to variety of weapons in a safe and free environment.
And for those who want to make a weekend of it, people can stay overnight in the wooded camp sleeping in bell tents.
The weekend of events will also be repeated the following weekend 24/25 November.
Both bushcraft experience weekends are to be held in Meon Springs’ bushcraft camp built in a wood overlooking the South Downs.
The cost of the ‘Fur, feather and fin’ day is £145 per person and includes people taking away all the game they prepare.
The ‘Woodland weaponry day’ costs £85 per person.
