Face to Face Recovery College Courses (18+)

Do you want to learn some practical skills in a woodland setting? This course running with our partners at Athelas CIC provides the opportunity to learn with instruction and supervision how to develop a range of woodland skills.

Practical skills covered will include:

1) The safe lighting, management, use, and extinguishing of an open fire.

2) The safe use hand tools and carving knives to create natural crafts.

3) The identification of a range of native and introduced trees and plants, and their uses and ecology.

The course is designed to give adult students access to a woodland environment where they can gain practical skills and support their wellbeing by being out in nature. Students will need a moderate level of fitness as the sessions are held in a woodland setting that is sometimes accessed via muddy paths.
