Two Day Course – Cost £120 Deposit £60
Saturday 19th – Sunday 20th August 2017
A two day course covering the fundamental skills of Bushcraft. Get to grips with basic bushcraft tools and learn how to use them safely and effectively. Students will get the opportunity to:
- make fire using natural resources and a variety of historic techniques
- build shelters using natural materials
- prepare wild game & cook some wonderful food over a camp fire
- use bushcraft tools to make some traditional woodland crafts
- sharpen and maintain bushcraft tools.
Due to the ever-changing seasons, no visit to the woods is ever the same and our courses reflect this. Therefore there may be the opportunity to explore such skills as tracking, trapping, making natural cordage and foraging.
- Matthew McIntyre began his adventures in the outdoors through mountaineering and watersports. He pursued his passion for the outdoors by studying for a BSc (Hons) in Outdoor and Environmental Education. During his time at University he discovered his love for bushcraft and woodland skills. Upon leaving University he has worked as an Environmental Education Officer and a Bushcraft Instructor for a leading Bushcraft School.
- Born and raised in North Wales Matthew believes there is no environment as beautiful as British Woodlands and his greatest pleasure comes from introducing people to the forgotten arts of our aboriginal ancestors.
- Being in the outdoors without a knowledge of bushcraft is like opening a book without being able to read, we are just looking at the pictures. Bushcraft unlocks a world of incredible secrets.
All our Bushcraft courses take place in our 50 acres of woodland in the heart of the Clwydian Range AONB. The woodlands are managed for wildlife as well as being the site of our courses.
