Here at Hands on Bushcraft we have a love for the outdoors, therefore all our courses are held in a deciduous woodland. Local trees such as hazel, silver birch, hawthorn, ash and oak will become your friends along side the barn owls, foxes, badgers and deer who roam through the woods.
Hands on Bushcraft offer a wide range of bushcraft and survival courses from our woodland sites in Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and East Sussex. All of which are fun as well as informative, our aim is for you to go away from our courses with a sense of achievement and increased confidence in your abilities in bushcraft, wilderness living and sustainability.
At the start of each course there will be an initial safety briefing where you will be told about any hazards in the woods. We will talk about wilderness hygiene and protection of the local woodland and environment.
Whilst on the course any cooking will take place over our open fire with us giving guidance on campfire cooking techniques. We will provide ingredients for all your meals unless otherwise stated on the course content. At Hands on Bushcraft we want to provide you with delicious local foods that you may not eat everyday. Therefore, we use local game such as rabbit, pheasant, pigeon, fish and venison, including seasonal herbs and vegetables. We like to involve everyone so there will be an opportunity for you to have a go at backwoods cooking. If you are vegetarian or have any other dietary needs we can cater for you providing we know in advance.
All ages from 12 years up and abilities are welcome on our courses (people under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a paying adult) and we also offer large group discounts.
