This is the perfect place to learn about bushcraft and we have just found the perfect leader, James Linford!
On July 27 he will be here to introduce people to the main skills and knowledge required for living in the woods including: knife skills, shelter building, modern and traditional fire making techniques, gathering and preparing materials, learning to use a fire-steel/flint and steel with a variety of tinders, and sourcing materials and their uses.
Another new course, this time on picture framing, led by Glyn Jones. All the places were taken quite quickly and those who signed up were not disappointed, judging from their comments:
Really good presentation. I liked the demonstration and then all of us having a go at each technique. The handouts are excellent. Thanks too to Glyn’s daughter who road tested them! And I’m thrilled with my finished framed photo. Helena
This is the first time we have run a blacksmithing course at Assington Mill.
