Stag & Hen Party Bushcraft Workshops

Join Bushcraft Instructor, Greg Power for a Stag & Hen Party Bushcraft Workshop in the beautiful Somerset and Wiltshire woodland. A day of bushcraft activities that will focus on the four areas of shelter, fire, water and foraging in stunning woodland in Somerset and Wiltshire. This Stag & Hen Party Bushcraft Workshop has been designed to spark your interest in the glorious British countryside. It will give a taster in to how you can explore it further and do so comfortably.

Greg runs a variety of bushcraft courses, bushcraft workshops and events in Somerset and Wiltshire woodlands. He has been involved in education for over ten years and has a Life Long Learning Sector qualification to enable him to share his skills with others. Greg qualified as a Bushcraft Instructor in 2005. Since then he has run his own team building and bespoke courses in the tranquility of the woods, sharing his passion for the outdoors with adults and children alike.

Greg runs all of his bushcraft courses and workshops at a gentle pace so that everyone in the group is involved. Whether this is collecting wood, learning safe cutting techniques, fire-lighting, foraging in the hedgerows, preparing and cooking fish or game, building camps or whittling a spoon, all of these make for an enjoyable and memorable experience.

Greg always has a good ratio of instructors to attendees on his bushcraft courses, all of whom are First Aid trained. All courses are covered by our public liability insurance.  See our information leaflets for bushcraft and spoon carving. 

We can tailor the Stag & Hen Party Bushcraft Workshop contents and length to your requirements. Drop Greg an email or give him a call to discuss your requirements. We run our Stag & Hen Party Bushcraft Workshops and courses in Somerset and Wiltshire but are happy to consider bushcraft courses further afield.

More information about Greg

Greg Power has been teaching bushcraft for well over ten years. Greg grew up in a small Somerset village and has been fascinated with the British countryside ever since he can remember. Time in the British Army allowed him to see many different countries and this simply confirmed his belief that our country holds the best wild areas in the world with a huge catalogue of flora and fauna to delve into.
