Throw Axes like a Viking
Get yourself over to Bath's most exciting new adventure site, Brocks Outdoor Adventures, and get ready to channel your inner Viking. Once you arrive you'll find yourself surrounded by Kelston Roundhill's spectacular countryside. Your friendly host will begin by taking you on a little woodland walk towards the axe targets. They'll go through some quick safety stuff here (we promise it’s not long) and give you a demonstration before you give it a go.

Learn the craft of stained-glass
This one-day course will introduce you to the medieval craft of stained glass. You will choose from a selection of designs that are all achievable in a day. Your day will include tuition and materials for a panel with a simple design approx 20cm square or a rectangle 20cm x 25cm. Classes are small - one or two people - so you get a lot of individual tuition and extra help if needed. By the end of the day you will have a beautiful leaded glass panel to take home. We start at 9:30am with an introduction to the day. You will then learn the basics of glass cutting before choosing a design and selecting your glass from a range of colours and textures to make your panel unique. After you have cut the glass pieces to fit the design I teach you how to use lead and solder to join the glass pieces together. To finish your piece you will learn to cement and polish to make your panel strong and water-tight. I aim to finish the day at 5 or 6pm. There will be refreshment breaks mid-morning and mid-afternoon and a light lunch around 1pm. I am an Airbnb Superhost and can accommodate up to three guests so you can include the course in a short break. Other things to note The course is not suitable for pregnant women and nursing mothers because it involves working with lead.
