What people are saying about our Introduction to Bushcraft Courses:

“We spent an incredible day learning bushcraft skills. Darren and Mac were really welcoming and patient in teaching us new crafts and the location was absolutely beautiful. Aside from that, they provided food (despite our awkward dietary needs) and we had a thoroughly enjoyable day learning fire lighting, mallet carving and other new skills. I would highlty recommend ther experience days to anyone wanting to try something new or want to learn new things outdoors. “

“Thank you for the excellent teaching. We had a fantastic day on Saturday – we’re still talking about the day and the new skills we learned (and of course admiring the mini mallets that we made). It was a perfect stress free and knowledgable day from you guys. Looking forward to attending another course in the future.”
