This course is available on request. So please contact us.
We like to give our customer what they want at great value, therefore ‘What do you want?’ We are able to provide bespoke courses over, 1 day or more, that will fulfil your exact requirements. These unique bushcraft workshops and courses can be based on one of our current course structures or we can design an entirely new course for you.
Our ½ or one day Bushcraft & Survival workshops are designed to give exactly what you want, when you want. We are able to provide a range of 1 day or ½ day workshops and specialist survival courses which are an informative introduction to the relevant subject skills and require a hands-on practical approach.
During these workshops we are able to concentrate on honing a specific skill to a high degree of competency or we can introduce you to a range of skills.

Requested a whole day booking on short notice just before Christmas - and Lawrence was kind enough to accommodate! Wasn't sure what to expect, as this was my first attempt at bushcraft woodwork - we started the day off having a chat and a doodle; cup of tea and some homemade cake... we then had a talk about the different tools and safe handling before spending the rest of the morning roughing out a log you'd typically stick on the fire - really enjoyed this aspect as axe work can be quite a challenge and i learned some finesse. Delicious homemade soup for lunch before moving onto knife work and attempting to turn my 'spoon' into something usable! The process was harder than I thought, but made possible with guidance, and thoroughly enjoyable. I can't say my first attempt is pretty, but I use it when cooking as it's very satisfying.
