Bushcraft Weekend

'As I wipe my bloody hands on a patch of grass, I reflect on how dull, by comparison, a spa weekend would have been. Who wants a pedicure when you can flense a rabbit, instead?'

Caitlin Moran, The Times

Making fire by friction

This course aims to introduce you to wilderness survival skills and bushcraft techniques. We cram as much quality instruction and outdoor experience as we possibly can into your two days out in the woods.  By Saturday night you'll be sleeping in your own leaf litter shelter, warmed by a fire you've lit yourself (not a match or lighter in sight) eating a meal made from gathered foods.  You might even be carving something useful or making string from plant fibres by the light of the fire.  If you like the idea of travelling light in the great outdoors and making the most of any natural resource you may find or feel that a grounding in survival and wilderness living would be the best way to be equipped for travel through wild places, then read on...

 

Over this weekend you will receive instruction and practical experience in:
