What is Bushcraft?

Bushcraft is about learning and developing skills that mean you can not only survive, but thrive in the natural environment. The mantra “knowledge weighs nothing” is central to what we practice, and the aims of the Original Outdoors Bushcraft courses are to help people develop and re-learn simple skills that were common knowledge to our ancestors, such as firelighting, building shelters and finding safe drinking water.
All of our courses are based on a structure teaching method – explain, demonstrate, practice, develop. Not everybody learns in the same way and our teaching practices reflect this.
Bushcraft is a term used to describe a way of living in the great outdoors using wilderness survival skills working in harmony with the natural environment and not in spite of it. It is commonly used to describe wilderness living skills in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. The term was made popular by Mors Kochanski in the Northern Hemisphere and in the southern hemisphere by Les Hiddins (AKA The Bush Tucker Man). Here in the U.K. the term has become synonymous with the instructor, author and television presenter Ray Mears.
All of our courses include expert tuition from instructors with years of experience working and living in the outdoors. Many also have Mountain Rescue, Search and Rescue and military backgrounds. There are a range of courses available, but if you would like something specific then we can arrange a bespoke course for you, your friends or colleagues.
