We pride ourselves on high quality value for money courses which are realistic, enjoyable and practical. If you enjoy taking part in outdoor activities and breathing in the fresh air, then why not join us around our camp fire on one of our bushcraft courses, where you can experience the rich natural beauty of Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and the Cotswolds.

Our bushcraft courses are held in a fun and relaxing manner; there is an emphasis on learning and having a great time through practical exercises, developing your wilderness survival techniques and putting them to great use. Our bushcraft experience days and weekends are delivered by experienced instructors that will share their knowledge and experiences with you, guiding you through the various aspects of bushcraft and wilderness survival. Some of the skills taught when partaking in our outdoor activities include learning how to safely light a fire (without matches) and being able to maintain it in all weather conditions, how to build a shelter that not only looks great but will keep you warm and dry and how to prepare various game such as Deer, Rabbit and Fowl alongside wilderness cooking techniques.

Bushcraft Experience shelter

We run a variety of specialist bushcraft courses and experience days which focus on Spoon Carving, Bow Making, Wild Food Foraging and Wild Game Butchery amongst others. Here at Hands on Bushcraft, we believe in high quality tuition, therefore a student to instructor ratio of 8:1 is adopted. We want you to learn new skills when taking part in our outdoor activities, so that you can go out into the countryside and enjoy your bushcraft experiences more. We aim for you to go away from our courses with an increased confidence and a sense of achievement.

We also offer bespoke bushcraft courses, tailor made especially for you. So whether you want 1-on-1 training, a bushcraft birthday party, a stag do or corporate team building course, we can make it happen.
