Where do your woodland crafts courses take place?
Westwell, Kent, just 50 miles from the centre of London, in quite stunning ancient woodland in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We have access to around 60 or so acres of broadleaf woodland. Our camp is in a private woodland, which itself is in the middle of private land.
What previous experience do I need?
All of our courses are designed so that you don’t need any previous experience, and are entirely hands on so that you leave us with simple, practical and repeatable skills. We are certain that you will have a lot of fun along the way!
What facilities are available on your woodland crafts courses?
So that you can effectively learn the skills that we teach, we have created a learning environment in the woods. Our bushcraft courses are based at an expedition style camp with a yurt and wood burning stove, a parachute, a kitchen area, work benches and a composting toilet. We have areas where you can pitch a hammock, tarp or small tent, cleared of standing and hanging dead wood, or you can camp on the adjacent working farm campsite.
