What you'll do

Gather together for an afternoon of blacksmithing and huddling around the fire enjoying mulled wine and mince pies. London Bushcraft are offering this event at below cost price to celebrate Christmas and London Bushcraft’s new partnership with a local blacksmith. Under the guidance of a blacksmith you will learn how to forge a fire striker that you will then make a fire with flint and with your creation. This could be something to keep or a Christmas gift for a loved one. Then we will celebrate our efforts gathered by the fire with mulled wine and mince pies. What better way to celebrate Christmas! You will go home with your handmade steel fire striker, a piece of flint and char cloth to get to all set for future fire lighting! Book early as limited places available. Date: Sunday 8th December 2018 Time: 12pm- 3pm Location: Eastbrookend Country Park, The Chase, Dagenham Road, Rush Green, Romford, Essex, RM7 0SS. To meet in the car park at 12pm or at Dagenham East underground station at 11:30am sharp. Contact office@londonbushcraft.com if you would like to be met at Dagenham East underground station

Wendy

I'm the founder of London Bushcraft, the only bushcraft company based in the capital! I have been offering friendly, fun and hands on bushcraft courses since 2012. As well as being experienced in bushcraft in the UK, I have led 21 expeditions worldwide. During these trips I has foraged for wild rhubarb in Mongolia; eaten live ants in Ecuador; gone mud fishing in Vietnam; tracked with the Kalahari Bushmen in Botswana; caught and eaten frogs for breakfast in Laos; and picked enough wild blueberries in Ecuador to turn myself blue. These experiences bring real depth of knowledge to the bushcraft and survival skills taught by London Bushcraft.
