Welcome to the Green School website - the best Bushcraft school in the Chilterns

Bread Making

We start with a brief safety talk, before we take a walk over to a quieter part of the wood where I will explain about fire, how it is important to us, and how easy it is to cook over a small charcoal fire. Whilst the fire is getting ready for cooking, the children will make up some simple bread doughs (these can be flavoured with dried herbs or spices as desired). Then we will twist our doughs onto "green" sticks, before baking over the hot coals till ready to eat.

IMPORTANT: Please let me know if any of your intended guests have any food allergies or intollerances when you come to book this activity.

This activity suits ages 5+ years.

Time span: 1 hour (usually): depending on what you wish. It could be combined with another activity, to make an activity of 1.5 hours.

Group size: up to 20 children. (With 1 adult for every 5 children.)

£160 for a 1 hour activity;
£230 for a 1.5 hour activity

Groups over 20 in number can be booked by arrangement (to a maximum of 25). Please Note: there is an additional charge of £8 per extra child, per hour of activity.

Sessions generally last for 1 hour, but I am always happy to put together a longer activity to suit your requirements: this is your day, I will work with you to make it really special. Please contact me if you have a query.
