The Woodland Ways survival skills course will ensure that you have the self-confidence and practical knowledge at your disposal to enjoy your woodland adventures to the utmost. Our main camps teaching the survival skills course are located in Oxfordshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, and Lincolnshire.
You will expand your horizons at the survival skills course as you stretch your knowledge of survival and nature lore. Through our survival skills course, you will learn how to build a campfire, a warm shelter, and how to prepare water and food. With the experience gained through our survival skills course, you will develop a deeper understanding of the environment and how to comfortably and safely live in the wild, whether for just one night, a weekend or more.
The survival skills course will enhance your comfort and enjoyment of the natural surroundings. Join us at a survival bushcraft skills course to learn about campcraft, tracking, foraging for natural foods, water filtration and purification, preparation of fish and game and cookery among other survival skills.
A survival skills course provides a means for you to learn to live in and with nature while enjoying yourself in the process. This is not an endurance test. You'll relax, get away from the stressful world for a while, meet new people, laugh, learn and have serious fun all as you absorb the natural experience provided by the survival skills course. At a Woodland Ways survival skills course, you will learn all of the above plus the additional benefit of earning self-confidence a trait which you will soon question how you ever managed without.
As in all walks of life, including for the Bushcraft practitioner, there are a number of uses for glue. You may need to repair a broken piece of kit, be working on a decorative item, or attach a flint arrowhead for hunting. The chances are though when you are out and about you will not have some stashed away in your sack!
You can make your own glue by taking the resin from a pine tree, for example from Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris- which incidentally is the only native pine in Britain!).
You will often find this resin either seeping as a clear liquid from a fresh wound on the tree or dried into a white mass. If you collect only as much as you need and heat it up over a small fire you will produce a very sticky liquid substance. When this dries it will be very brittle and prone to cracking, but if you mix it with a little wood ash from your fire this will add strength and flexibility to the glue
