discover edible mushrooms & fungi. Online workshop

Gain confidence in finding, harvesting & cooking with wild fungi.

Join our workshop, walk the wild food trail and kickstart your foraging journey.

Bushcraft Tutors & Foragers, Dave & James will be hosting this live webinar workshop showcasing a selection of wild edible mushrooms that are common, identifiable and available in the hedgerow and woodland during Autumn. You will learn about fungi you can find and cook tasty dishes with.

The workshop is aimed at beginners to fungi foraging. You will learn about common fungi that can not be easily mistaken for hazardous species.

This workshop was a smash hit last year during lockdown and people have demanded we run it again. If you came last year there will be some new content for you too as well as revisiting common edible fungi we covered last time. Having a refresher on this complex subject is no bad thing.

A ticket costs just £11. These wild food events are selling quickly, so grab your place whilst you can 🙂 Everyone has loved these workshops so far and they’ve been really popular.

You will also get the chance to put your questions to us during the open Q&A session at the end of the workshop.

The workshop will last one and a half hours and will be hosted via Zoom. Once you book into the workshop then you will receive an email from Zoom with details of how to access the webinar.

edible fungi workshop - foraging & wild food

Your Tutors:  James Kendall & Dave Watson

Dave Watson has over 30 years of bushcraft experience. He is the lead tutor at Woodland Survival Crafts. The business was established in 1995 following a 10 year career in outdoor activity centres.

Dave’s passion for ancient survival skills, or ‘bushcraft’ as it has become known, stems from his teenage years when he spent much of his time wandering around Britain in semi-wild places trying to live off the land.

Dave views the subject of bushcraft as an exciting and inspiring tool suitable for everyone, to teach life skills, environmental education, and history as well as being a perfect basis in which to impart sound spiritual lessons.

James Kendall is the Head Bushcraft Instructor at Woodland Classroom, having worked in environmental education & conservation for over 10 years. James’ approach to teaching  steers his students toward fostering a deeper connection with nature through understanding the landscape around us; “Bushcraft skills are an effective way to do this as we learn how to make use of natural materials and live lightly with the land, whilst also connecting with our own ancient past by seeing the land through the eyes of our ancestors.”

Dave Watson from Woodland Survival Crafts
