Bushcraft one-to-one tuition


A woodland experience; learning Bushcraft skills, receiving personal tuition, and an escape into the wilds of the countryside!

We will be cooking lunch over our campfire, and with the camp kettle gently simmering, a brew will never be far away. Your day will include any of the following Bushcraft sessions and you can spend as long as you wish on any of these topics:

  • Fire lighting methods and igniting successful campfires
  • Spoon carving and whittling other utensils: spreaders and spatulas
  • Introduction and confidence building with sharp tools; knives, saws and axe
  • Making natural cordage
  • Erecting man-made shelters, tarps and hammocks
  • Finding and making water safe to drink
  • Bread baking over the campfire
  • Building shelters with natural materials
  • Natural history; woodland walk with tree identification and uses, and seasonal plants
  • Rubbing sticks together to make fire; making a bow-drill-set and creating fire-by-friction!

David was and is a perfect professional – seriously knowledgeable about bushcraft with a calm and relaxed teaching style. I can’t recommend him highly enough, I thoroughly enjoyed my day and have already booked more. He’s the kind of guy you learn from just by being around him, let alone being taught by him! Book up, you won’t regret it!
