Women in the Woods

Learn traditional crafts and enjoy conversation around the campfire.

In these six weekly series we use natural materials to create beautiful artifacts. We will learn different crafts and techniques over the six sessions, working at your own pace, enjoying conversation, good company and beautiful views in the park.  You can attend the full series of 6 sessions or join us for occasional sessions.  All places need to be booked in advance.
