The more you know, the less you carry!
Re-connect with nature by noticing how the trees around you can be made into useful items. By using sustainable harvesting technqies we'll learn how to take what we need from the woodland without damaging the ecosystem.
Using our most trusty tools, a small hand saw and a bushcraft knife, we'll learn safe and effective techniques for wood processing.
When splitting firewood having a wedge handy can be indispensible for freeing a stuck knife or axe - we’ll make one out of green wood.
No need to carry tent pegs if you knw how to fashion them from your environment - and they're often more secure than the metal ones too!
There's nothing better than sitting around a campfire watching a kettle boil or a pot of food cook - our ancestors came up with many ingenious ways or hanging containers over the fire and we'll explore the pros and cons of some of them including a cooking tripod, a Waygon stick, and hanging bar and an australian cooking crane.
Don't worry if you're completely new to bushcraft or tool use - this will be a relaxed and welcoming morning in the woods suitable for complete beginners age 16+.
Ticket age 16+£40.00
