At Howl we specialise in journeying skills, the Bushcraft we practice and teach is that of the traveler. There is a wonderful simplicity that comes from taking a trip in the outdoors, a pragmatism gleaned from necessity. We draw from this experience in the field to teach a set of skills and knowledge based in expedience and realism, skills that actually get used while outdoors. We provide an insight into the Natural world, opening up a vast array of natural resources and knowledge to help you travel with less reliance on the contents of your rucksack: it’s what you carry in your mind that matters.

 

 We teach these practical skills in a friendly and open way, our hope being to enable you to make your adventures into the Great Outdoors memorable and enjoyable. We'll help you cultivate a positive attitude, a confidence in yourself, and a connection with the natural world through which you travel.

We promote the utmost respect for the environment, the ability to pass unnoticed through the woods brings with it a deeper understanding of the wilderness, and our part in it. It is this philosophy which forms the very core of our work.

Our Bushcraft Venues

Our primary venue for 2018 is a wondrous ancient woodland in the North of sheffield. Our base-camp is nestled in the heart of a vast 400 acre woods, a location of profound beauty with Oak, Sweet Chestnut and Conifer to just a few. Owned and managed by the Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust, it is with their exclusive permission that we have the privilege to deliver our wilderness courses here and with every client joining us in the woods we're able to give back and support the Trust in the goal of nurturing the local wildlife. 

"I grew up in these woods, in fact I was taken to them directly from the hospital after my birth! I've spent countless days walking these paths, watching animals and birds from the trees, and I'm honoured to able to introduce this fantastic place to new visitors whilst delivering my wilderness skills courses." - Jamie Dakota

Our secondary venue for 2018 is a stunning 12 acre private woodland just 5 minutes drive from the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. This quiet woodland is a setting full of beautiful Larches and mixed deciduous trees set within a private estate. We predominantly use this site for our Family Bushcraft Days as we're the only ones there we can let children wander and explore within the woods. We also have our custom round house built here to give us a base in which to gather when the weather is challenging.
