Over the two days of this course, you will make a simple but beautifully crafted fire poker and a memory that will stay with you forever.
This simple but challenging design will give you plenty to learn over the two days and an opportunity to try a wide variety of techniques.

Tea, coffee, cake & lunch - We provide a simple honest lunch such as bread, cheese and soup which are included in the course cost.
COSTS INCLUDE THE COST OF STEEL.
£8 per night - Students can pitch their tent in Wernog wildflower meadow and soak up the alfresco evening ambience.
Breakfast & evening meals - not included in costs. Evening feasts are down to the students themselves, but we can shop for you with a kitty of approximately £6 each per day for ingredients! With use of an outdoor kitchen, pizza oven, fire pit and fresh spring water, the formula for evening meals is to team up ‘chefs’, two at a time to cook for the rest of the group…. the bar is raised night after night and the food just gets better and better.
