Ferg has been making knives for over 20 years and his experience is second to none. This is an extremely practical course and the pleasure in creating your own tool is a truly unique and timeless experience.
This is a fully catered course and people are encouraged to camp to immerse themselves in the process. You can bring your own tent or we can provide basic bell tents and beds (these are an additional £120) or you can have luxury accommodation in one of our furnished bell tents. Details here.
Wow, 4 days of one of the best experiences of my life in a beautiful part of the world. From bashing my first bit of metal, heat treating, fashioning the handle, leather work and sharpening I ended up with a proper usable bushcraft knife. Fergus and Jamie running the course are such a lovely down to earth pair of blokes. Fergus is clearly a master of his craft with endless patience. Jamie's cooking was perfect, venison stews, burgers, just perfect in the fresh outdoors. I would recommend this to anyone, you will be tired by the end but in a satisfied way. Hoping to come back for the bow making and other courses, just superb! North Wales at it's best!
