What is bushcraft?
Bushcraft is more than just about survival in the wild, with an objective of hoping to escape from it. Bushcraft is more about learning skills required to immerse yourself in a wild place for short, or longer periods of time with as little negative impact on that place as possible. Taking part in our bushcraft sessions will provide participants with skills to enjoy a level of self-reliance within a wild place.
Bushcraft courses we run will help you gain knowledge and learn skills to keep you comfortable and also promote deeper connections. Spending time in nature can provide a level of reconnection with nature in itself, but gaining deeper personal satisfaction through nature connection requires a set of skills to help you experience an ‘at home’ feeling.
There are many courses that can provide you with survival skills to help you escape the wild, but our bushcraft courses are aimed at getting people to want to spend more time there through gaining appreciating of the bigger picture. Our complementary approach to delivery of bushcraft skills is going to appeal to those who are wanting to explore more than just learning practical survival type skills.
Is bushcraft for me?
If you’re wanting to deepen your connection with nature, engage with a deeper level of nature awareness, spend some quality time in a beautiful woodland setting, learn to slow down and notice more, then our bushcraft sessions will provide worthwhile experiences. Our sessions are designed to be a fun, encouraging participants to experience the sense of feeling at one with the natural world.
Nature connectedness has the power to feed the soul. Follow the link below to find out about our next bushcraft session that will fall in the Bluebell season.
Our bushcraft sessions
Our bushcraft sessions focus on not just teaching skills to help people’s physical comfort in a wild place, but to help them reconnect with a need that’s hard-wired into our DNA, The bushcraft skills of our ancestors provided them with the means to survive and thrive because they had such a close connection with the natural world, since lost down the generations as society became more and more urbanised.
Our bushcraft sessions are about re-learning skills our ancestors took for granted and which provided them not just with the means to survive, but thrive. Whether we’re teaching about foraging, fire making, shelter building or woodland crafts we also promote appreciation of sustainability
