Our Approach to Bushcraft

There are various ways to describe the differences between ‘bushcraft’ and ‘survival’, but what really sets true bushcraft apart is attitude. At Woodland Survival Crafts we understand that in wild environments it is vital to harness natural resources and work with them rather than against them.

For example, successful use of the bow drill set is not about how fast and furious you can work it – your natural fibre wouldn’t survive the strain. It’s about care and efficiency which takes so much less energy and is actually quicker.

Dave Watson

Dave’s passion for ancient survival skills, or ‘bushcraft’ as it has become known, stems from his teenage years when he spent much of his time wandering around Britain in semi-wild places trying to live off the land.

This was a powerful and important time for Dave as he searched for some meaning to his life and personal self-worth. What he discovered during this period dramatically affected his whole outlook on life.

Dave has devoted his life to using his bushcraft skills to help develop, train or mentor people from all walks of life. He spent ten years working for outdoor activity centres, before deciding to set up in business for himself in 1995.

In 2007 Dave instigated the development with the IOL of the Bushcraft and Survival Special Interest Group. This has resulted in the development of training and assessment for outdoor practitioners in the key skills to promote safe practice and understanding.

This same attitude applies just as much in the way we believe in treating people. Our aim is always to bring out the best in whoever we work with or for. However, we don’t believe in being soft! You need a certain toughness to survive in the wilderness, but also, in normal everyday life, you can’t really help yourself or others without facing up to reality.
