Kickstart your foraging journey & walk the wild food trail.
Join our monthly workshops online, with James & Lea from Woodland Classroom. Enjoy finding, harvesting and cooking with wild food every month during our online workshops.
Christmas is coming and it’s time to bring a little wild to the festive table. You will learn how to make irresistible chocolate treats using the left-over fruits from your hedgerow spirits. We will be bottling our sloe gins ready for Christmas gifts and you will discover ways to make beautiful festive decorations using foraged natural materials from the woods, to bring the outside indoors over the holiday season.
Our online foraging workshops have been a smash hit during lockdown, as people want to learn how to make tasty, healthy food from the wild plants around them.
You will also get seasonal foraging tips from Special Guest Speakers from the world of wild food, bushcraft and outdoor cooking.
A ticket costs just £7. These events are selling quickly, so grab your place whilst you can 🙂 Everyone has loved these workshops so far and they’ve been really popular.
Lets celebrate our Wild Food Year together with a glass of warmed elderberry elixir.

YOU can be part of the workshop too. We’re inviting all our online students to chime in with their foraging experiences during lockdown, recipe successes and failures, and any tips you have yourself to share with the class. We would love to hear from you. So, if you have something you want to share, send us an email at [email protected] We might even ask you to showcase your creation for the rest of the class as a guest speaker.
The workshop will last 1 hour and will be hosted via Zoom. Following the session there will be extra time for an open Q&A with your hosts and guest speaker. Once you book into the workshop an email will be sent you a few days before the event with details of how to access the webinar on Zoom.
HOW TO BOOK – VERY IMPORTANT!
The cost is £7, this is not per person though, only per slot. So feel free to cram as many family members around the screen as you can 🙂
Once you have your ticket, we will follow up with an email for you to register for the Zoom meeting, following which you will receive the Zoom meeting link and entry password. So, look out for that.
Please note, tickets are non-refundable.
