Our courses

Here at Westcountry Bushcraft we aim to get you into the outdoors and push your limits to explore something mankind has almost forgotten – the art of bushcraft. What is bushcraft? Bushcraft is the skill looking beyond the trees, roots and plants – It’s seeing mother nature as craft materials; wood, cordage and food. On our courses we will teach you what to look out for, which woods to create fire with, cook with, carve with, use for spring-triggered trapping, making traditional longbows etc. You will also learn about the importance of the seasons, tree identification, water purification, cordage making, basket weaving and much, much more.
