About The Event
Bushcraft includes knowledge and skills about living & surviving in the forest, nature or wilderness.
It’s useful to know when you are hiking or making a worldtrip.
Bushcraft is based on using nature, eco-friendly practices, and the principle “The more you know the less you carry” (Mors Kochanski).
The things we will learn & practise:
- Basic skills of using a knife (and Axe)
- Firemaking (several techniques, if enough time also the bowdrill!)
- Sleeping setup in the outdoors (setting up tarp, tarp knots, etc.),
- Cooking on campfire (making a pothanger)
- Woodcarving (carving a spoon, for example)
- Useable treespecies and wild edibles
- (Optional: Cordage weaving from natural fibers)
Your tutors:We are Julius & Dylan from 'Smooth Gefixt' and we make Bushcraft & Survival video's on Youtube (https://www.youtube.com/smoothgefixt).
As two cousins, we have both been passionate about the natural world since a young age!
After starting off with camping in the back garden and exploring different surroundings, we developed a more wilderness skillset and started recording.
See you at the Celt weekend for some fun in Nature!
You can bring a child, but they must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
Light Lunch Included value of €7.50
