Survival skills and woodland crafts

The National Forest is one of the few places that you can have a go at ancient woodland crafts with Greenwood Days. Try pole lathe turning, willow weaving or making coracles, which date back thousands of years.

Our three survival schools show you how to make fire using flint or just wood, how to build shelters and identify plants and trees essential for survival in woodland. Find out more details and course dates for Woodland Ways, Survival School and Woodland Survival Skills

You can combine survival skills with Forest Four Wheel Drive on the new Voyager Course to learn the basics of expedition survival and driving.
