Bushcraft & Outdoors Skills

Bushcraft is a term used to describe living at one with nature, and the skills and knowledge required to do so.

Bushcraft skills include; fire making, tracking, hunting, shelter building, using tools such as knives and axes, foraging, carving wood, making containers from natural materials, twine-making, and many other things. Pure bushcraft uses only the natural things around us, modern bushcraft utilises the minimum of modern equipment.

These outdoors skills would all have been a part of daily life for our ancestors, and are still practised by many tribes and remote people throughout the world.

Bushcraft helps us to rediscover our roots, live responsibly and sustainably, to find and enjoy our part in the natural world.
