9th July 2022

We speak to Forest school Practitioners, Scout leaders and Outdoor educators all the time who want to take their skills to the next level and offer something different to their clients.

Our skills days are for those who have a solid foundation of skills (such as forest schools or scout leading) but want to take their skills further without having to commit to a long term course.

What Is ‘Go Further With Fire’?

This full day workshop will start by taking what you have learned and really ‘unpicking’ it and understanding it at a deeper level, so that you can ensure your customers, clients and pupils will gain success in your session, regardless of the weather, skill or needs.

After a cooked lunch we will then go onto look at some of the more advanced fire lighting methods such as Bow drill and Hand drill.
as well as how to adapt them for different group sizes and abilities.
