Building Bushcraft Knowledge

This is an on-going club meeting every first and third Wednesday of the month. where we will look at a different skill at each session. Over time, as a members you will build an advanced knowledge of bushcraft, wild plants and tree uses, countryside knowledge, as well as wilderness travelling and living skills.

One Of A Kind

The Pioneers bushcraft club is we believe the first of it’s kind in the country. As members, you will become very well versed in an abundance of woodland, bushcraft, wilderness living and survival skills. We will take trips to woodland areas and the countryside and you will learn about trees and plants and all their many uses for utility, medicine, food and make useful tools and items. You will learn leathercraft, basketry from natural materials, natural direction finding techniques, fire from friction, water collection and purifying, tracking animals, and understanding their behaviour and much much more.


Some of the meetings will be ‘classroom’ based (not as serious as it sounds) and will cover topics such as carving, leathercraft etc. From time to time we will have specialist guest instructors who will have a specific advanced knowledge of their subject for example flint knapping arrow heads and tools, and once in a while we’ll go for a beach or woodland barbecue with game, fish, shellfish and foraged foods… and of course a few cold ones!

16+ Only

Members MUST be aged 16 or over (under 18’s must be accompanied by a paying adult). Membership is FREE. Each session costs £15 when paid on the day, or £25 for the month, when paid in advance. Any new member is welcome to come and have a look, for free for the first session.

If it’s not for you, no problem. If you’ve enjoyed your introduction we very much welcome you along to future sessions.
