You will learn about plant history, folklore and nutritional qualities.

This course will give you the skills and confidence to safely gather and transform your hedgerow bounty into delicious storable wild food products, across the seasons.

You will develop the confidence to safely identify seasonal wild plants, where to find them and how to prepare a range of products with techniques including; lacto-fermentation, infused vinegars, superfood powders, dehydration techniques, syrups, oxymels and elixirs.

You will learn about plant history, folklore and nutritional qualities with sensory and intuitive techniques to uncover the hidden depths of wild plants.

In each session we will meet and gather wild edible plants before getting hands on making one or two wild food products, working with different techniques each time and preparing products to take home and share.

Weather permitting we will be under the trees and around the fire for at least one session.

About the Craft Revolution

The Craft Revolution runs a vibrant programme of courses, projects, events and talks. It is a movement about making; a learning space, an ideas lounge, an action station. A story of ‘doing’ over ‘not doing’.

View all Craft Revolution courses here More about the Craft Revolution

All our courses are based on the Dartington estate, where a programme of events and visitor attractions operate year-round, and artists, makers, farmers, educators, craftspeople and entrepreneurs live and work – activity all inspired by our founders’ vision of a ‘many-sided life’.
