Intermediate Skills

 

This is targeted to those who have already attended our Intro to Bushcraft workshop and to

those who want to develop their skills and knowledge further.

 

During this 4 hour workshop from 14.30am - 18.30pm  we will delve into more depth with knots, alternative shelters, more primitive ways of getting your fires going and making tinder, along with the construction of tools to take home with you.

We will also look at basic tool maintenance as this is an often overlooked and fundamental skill

which you will benefit from knowing.

Tripod Seats and Bum Mats

In this workshop you will make yourself a comfortable woodland stool and mat to rest your derriere on, which of course you will be able to take home or use on your next outing into the wilderness. We will utilise most of the materials from nature.

For many of us, a simple tripod to keep us in a raised upright position and away from the ground makes all the difference in comfort, and having a small roll mat should you wish to sit on or use for keeping your personal belongings clean and easily accessible is also a handy item to have.

All materials and tools are provided for this workshop, just be sure to bring a packed lunch and a mug or full bottle/flask

This workshop is aimed for people over the age of 13 and participants will be shown the different techniques to safely create their wares using the tools required for this, mainly a folding saw with a little bit of knife work.

Natural Cordage and Hooters

 

In this workshop we will look at ways in which to create your very own natural cordage. We will harvest some raw materials and process them down to create a length of string, as well as learn how to join pieces together to make your string longer. Afterwards we will learn how to make a fun project our Hooter (whistle) which also will be made from natural materials, wood in this instance. A Hooter attached to a length of string can be a lot of fun but also serves well as an emergency signalling device.

​All materials and tools are provided for this workshop, just be sure to bring a packed lunch and a mug or full bottle/flask.

Netting for Noobies

 

In this workshop we will show you how to create a basic netted tote bag using just a few materials. Your finished bag can be used for all manner of things, and best of all, it will be completely unique and made by you, with a little help from us. A tote bag can come in really handy as they take little room in your pocket or bag. You can use it to carry medium sized items and we really find them useful for storing fresh fruit hung on the branches of trees.

All materials and tools are provided for this workshop, just be sure to bring a packed lunch and a mug or full bottle/flask.
