The interest in bushcraft and wilderness skills such as firecraft and shelter building is growing year upon year – this course is designed to give people a taste of the skills used, as well as a different way of spending time outdoors and connecting with the landscape.
The course takes place on a private 90-acre site near the market town of Ruthin and focuses on the core skills of bushcraft – Firecraft, Shelters and Food and Water.
