Bushcraft - The art of living in the bush. With it's foundation in survival & woodcraft but with the emphasis on long term living using skills and knowledge of the world around us.
We provide a range of bushcraft courses to suit all tastes.
Bushcraft Introduction (1/2 or full day)
Come and try your hand at a selection of key Bushcraft Skills. Based in our woodland near to Llangollen.
Survival Experience Weekend
Have you ever wondered how you would cope in a true survival situation? Well, here's your chance to find out!
The first morning will be spent learning basic bushcraft skills before you choose what kit to select for your survival scenario. With our woodland plot at your disposal and a Bushcraft instructor on hand at all times, how will you deal with the priorities of survival? Will you make it through 24 hours in the wilderness?
Your chance to make the most important tool in Bushcraft. Starting from a piece of steel bar you will learn how to shape the blade and tang, sharpen your knife and harden it. Fit a knotted paracord handle and you can take the completed knife away with you ready for use. The course lasts as long as it takes you to complete your knife, typically around 3 hours. Courses start at 10:30 although on popular dates may be split into morning and afternoon sessions starting at 10:30 & 13:30.
Longbow Making Weekend
Try your hand at Ash Long Bow Making. Starting with a split section of an Ash tree, you will start forming your bow with an axe before moving onto a shave horse and drawer knife. After tillering your bow you make a string for it so you can fire your first arrow before the end of the weekend.
Team Build Bushcraft
Bring along your team, whether it be colleagues, the family or just a group of friends.
The morning will be spent learning some of the basic bushcraft skills.
After lunch your group then have to decide how to divide into teams to achieve a predefined task that will require the use of all the skills learnt during the morning session.
