1-2-1 Bushcraft Tuition

We offer 1-2-1 Bushcraft Tuition for anyone looking to build on their basic skill set. Private sessions are usually hosted at the National Trust’s Chirk Castle estate where our bushcraft basecamp is established.

Private tuition is perfect for those times when you need to understand the nuances, those little details which can mean the difference between basic understanding and true mastery.

Whether you already have a basic understanding of bushcraft and are looking to enhance your skills or you’re an Outdoor Activity Leader or Forest School Practitioner wanting to improve your bushcraft skillset for teaching others, then James can help you get where you want to be.

1-2-1 Bushcraft Tutoring costs £40 per hour.

Meet James Kendall

With over 10 years experience working in the outdoors, James is our Head Bushcraft Instructor, certified through the Institute for Outdoor Learning. Following 2 years of mentoring from Dave Watson, Founder & Lead Instructor at the renowned Woodland Survival Crafts school.

“My approach to teaching bushcraft has always been with an emphasis on steering my students toward fostering a deeper connection with nature through understanding the landscape around us. Bushcraft skills are an effective way to do this as we learn about using natural materials and how we can live with the land, whilst also connecting with our own ancient past by seeing the land through the eyes of our ancestors.” – James Kendall

I recently attended my second Mindfulness in the Woods course with Lea. Lea is just fantastic, and I felt instantly at ease with her and the group. I would highly recommend these sessions as a way to connect with nature and as an antidote to the pressures of modern life. I will definitely be back! Thank you, Lea.
