A warm welcome from Firefox Bushcraft! Join us around our virtual campfire.
What could be more enjoyable than learning exciting new skills out in nature?
We specialise in teaching all kinds of people all kinds of skills for living, working and spending time in the Great Outdoors, or as it has come to be known -- Bushcraft.
A taster of what to expect from a Firefox Bushcraft and Nature awareness course.
Here’s an invitation
Join us in the woods for wood smoke, birdsong, a crackling campfire, woodland teas, and wild food as we learn the skills, lore and secrets of the expedition traveller, the naturalist, the pioneer, the backwoodsman, and of our ancestors.
Our Bushcraft events help you to develop a sense of wellbeing, self reliance and kinship with Nature.
It’s the ultimate antidote to the stresses of modern life as the thousands of people that Heath has guided in Nature can testify. Here’s a clip of Heath in action on the BBC’s Countryfile programme-
