The skills of bushcraft take you beyond merely surviving in the bush; they are about prospering in the bush.
We're not interested in a mad, sweaty, dash back to civilisation. What would the point of that be, if you could find everything you need in the bush?
Because our approach is less about preparing for disasters, and more about deepening into a relationship with wild nature, we teach bushcraft on an ongoing basis, in small groups that meet once a month or so.
Bushcraft is an art, a philosophy, a journey. It's not something you can learn in a day.
Having said that, there are simple principles and practices that can vastly improve your chances of success, should you find yourself in a sticky situation.
We hold one day workshops, as an introduction to joining an ongoing group, and these are held throughout the year. So if you're interested in having a bash at bushcraft, get in touch and we'll let you know when the next intro day will be.
