Complementing the Introduction to Forest Skills course, this day will look at skills to give teachers and environmental educators more confidence in leading groups outdoors. This course will focus on improving more of your own resources and knowledge in fire-by-friction, natural cordage, wild foods and campfire cooking. It is ideal for those who have done the introduction or have some experience of basic forest skills.
The Advanced Forest Skills course picks up where the first Forest Skills course left off. It assumes a basic proficiency with knife and folding saw, and stretches the student further in terms of new skills and knowledge of Britain’s natural resources. The subject areas covered will further enhance the participant’s personal confidence in being in the outdoors, as well as stimulating a deeper interest in bushcraft, and how it might be applied to different educational settings. The course continues to show how learning these skills can offer empowerment, inspiration and a deep experience of nature to a wide variety of client-groups.

As if we didn’t know it already, recent research has confirmed that a separation from the natural world leads to a diminished existence. Case-studies prove that restoring this connection leads to immediate and beneficial results, on all levels, including mind, body and spirit.
Bottom line is – people flourish in connection to nature. You only have to glance at WildWise’s testimonials to understand the value of this connection.
We see it all the time. We want you to.
