Wildlearning - Hedgerow Preserves

22 October 2017, 11:00 - 29 October 2017, 15:30 (Add to calendar)

Spend an inspiring autumnal day with local craftswoman Fay Jones in this wonderful ancient woodland learning to make a selection of different preserves from foraged items.

Make an interesting selection of products gleaned from the hedgerows at Bradfield Woods. Learn how to make rose hip syrup, pine needle vinegar, crab apple jelly and others in the ancient surroundings of this lovely wood. As you will be venturing out to pick many of the materials, please come suitably prepared for the weather and wear stout walking shoes or boots. You will leave with a seasonal selection of things you've made so that you can celebrate autumn at home. Suitable for complete beginners. 

Materials will be provided at an extra cost of £10, to be paid on the day to Fay.
