‘Bushcraft’ is the study and practice of wilderness living skills. These skills don’t necessarily require the technological advancements of our modern age but rely more on traditional knowledge and skills. The practice of bushcraft can provide you with food, shelter and all the necessities of survival as well as many comforts and conveniences that you might be surprised to learn can be found amongst nature. This course will equip you with the basic skills and knowledge of bushcraft which you can take away and practice and perfect over time.
