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

Thank you James for the brilliant Trees In Winter walk you did with the mindfulness in nature group on Saturday.

I found zoning in on the trees to work out what they are (even if i am still rubbish at it) really helpful in terms of getting into a mindful state of mind as it gives a focus that then can be expanded.

I suffer from GAD and although my meds make a huge difference (and i would never advocate people coming off anything, any more than i would advocate an insulin dependent person come of insulin), in terms of dealing with anxiety attacks and feeling generally better, It helps me get off the “thought carousel “. If only for a while. It seems to work better than some other techniques i stuggled with, due to difficulty in maintaining concentration, although lots of Lea’s visualisations work well too.

Plus it is awesome to investigate and know what is around you!

The Mindfulness in Nature Course has been superb and i have already learnt so much. For anyone who wants to explore this or just curious about the natural world, this couple offer the perfect balance of skills to give the best experience possible!

I an currently in a Park in Amsterdam before an important meeting and what am i doing? Identifying trees!

Thanks both , see you soon!
