One day Taster Course

The Wilderness Living one day taster has been designed with the novice in mind.
During the day, we will teach you a variety of skills including the bow-drill, basic shelter building, traps, throwing stick and water purification. We will also go on an edible plant walk where you will taste various edible plants (If you wish). Although you will learn the above skills, you need to keep in mind that we only have one day, and that there may not be a lot of time to thoroughly practice these skills. You should be able to learn all these skills sufficiently though to take them home and practice them successfully at home. The emphasis is very much on you getting a taste of what it is like to be out in the woods learning these skills and to give you a feeling of the type of courses we run.
We will serve you lunch in the form of bread, butter, ham, cheese, jams and other spreads. Fresh fruit will also be available. We will make sure there are plenty of hot and cold drinks available for you throughout the day.
The course is taught on our specialized course-site where there is plenty of shelter to work in if the weather is bad. The site is about 10 minutes walk away from the car-park, and there may be some muddy areas on the trail to the camp. This course does not require you to have a lot of equipment available, but below is a list:

Sharp knife (2" to 5" blade preferably non-folding but if it's a folding knife it has to be lockable!) If you do not have a knife, we would suggest you borrow one from us during the course rather then purchase one as we will explain different knife-types and their benefits during the course.
Plate, drinking-mug and spreading-knife
Warm clothing
Appropriate shoes
Rain gear
Notebook and different color pens
Leather gardening gloves
Spare space in your pack to take things home with you.


Some snack food (IE: travel-mix, dried fruits, chocolate)
