Woodland Ways Advanced Bushcraft Weekend
This course takes a few of the subjects that we cover on our Woodland Ways Bushcraft Weekend course and goes into them in more depth and also introduces some craft activities such as carving and basketry.
After being greeted by your instruction team there is a small walk to the fixed expedition style camp where you will be welcomed to the camp and its facilities. After a brief introduction to the tools you will be using for the weekend; knife and saw, you will then be shown how to split, shave and carve green wood and fashion some tent pegs. At the same
You will cook you own breakfast of a damper loaf,
After a buffet style lunch, you will be guided through the process of collecting and processing the materials to manufacture a group fire bow set. You will then use this to get your own shelter fire lit. With the shelter complete, the fire going and your cooking rig ready you are now in a position to think about your evening meal as we turn our attention to some game preparation.
As you meal is gently cooking over the fire there should be sufficient time to collect some seasonal wild ingredients to take back to camp and use them to make a tasty wild tea and to add to your evening meal. Whilst out and about we will also explore the flora and fauna of the woodland from the smallest animal sign to the largest tree.
All that is left to do is to enjoy your evening meal and get a good nights sleep in your shelter.
After a quick but hearty breakfast, the task for this last morning is to make your own willow basket to take home with you. You will be guided through the whole process of making a traditional round wicker basket. As the course finishes you will be able to use you finished basket to transport your lovingly carved spoon and tent pegs away with you.
