Our week-long Bushcraft survival courses are for those who want
comprehensive instruction in the cornerstones of wilderness
Bushcraft. Each is demanding and rewarding in its own way and
will leave you with a higher understanding of the world through
which you travel.
It is our firm belief that Wilderness Bushcraft has something of value to give to everyone. Hopefully this is reflected in our programme of
bushcraft courses and educational Wilderness Bushcraft Survival courses that have evolved over the thirty years we have been operating.
At Woodlore, bushcraft course development is a never-ending process as we endeavour to bring the subject to a wider range of students.
The skills and knowledge gained through Ray Mears bushcraft is extended and enhanced by tapping into the wilderness survival skills
developed by many indigenous peoples and other experts in the bushcraft survival course field, including Lars Fält, Brian Desmond and many others.
