Woodlore, The School of Wilderness Bushcraft, was founded in 1983 by the British Bushcraft expert, Ray Mears. Paving the way for Bushcraft courses in the UK, Woodlore began with Ray teaching small groups of students the knowledge and techniques that he had spent most of his early life honing. With Ray’s ambition and perserverance, Woodlore has since grown into a world-renowned and highly respected school, offering in-depth courses on a wide range of bushcraft and survival subjects.
As the situation with COVID-19/Coronavirus continues to affect our day to day lives, we have formulated a strategy to prepare for it as best we can following Public Health England and Government advice and guidelines, continually monitoring the situation as it develops.
We find ourselves living through a challenging time, to say the very least. Like you, we have been listening to the sad news reports of Coronavirus victims on a daily basis. Our thoughts go out to all those who have lost family members or who have loved ones currently fighting the illness in hospital or at home in self-isolation.
Are you looking for a unique gift for someone special this Christmas? Why not book an experience that they will never forget on one of our bushcraft courses and receive not one, but two free gifts for them to open this Christmas. The free gifts to be sent are as follows:
We have received this lovely post from Rupert Brown of Brown’s Bushcraft who tells us the story of The Brown Filter Bags:
My name is Rupert Brown founder and owner of Brown’s Bushcraft based in the South West of France. In addition to teaching bushcraft I am also the creator of The Brown filter bag. Along with many bushcrafters, I used Millbank bags for coarse water filtration and recommended these to students on my courses. The Millbank bag was used by the British military worldwide since the 1940’s. It was issued to every soldier along with chlorine tablets to provide a simple and effective means of treating dirty water. Millbank bags used to be readily available from army surplus stores. But when the army stopped using Millbank bags some years ago, they became more and more difficult to come by.
Our UK course dates for 2017 are now available to book on the website. In addition to our usual selection of courses based in East Sussex and Scotland we have an exciting new Cooking course added to the calendar for this year. We have also extended the reach of the Fundamental Bushcraft course to Gloucestershire with the Fundamental Severnside course. Book soon to avoid disappointment.
