Bushcraft Courses in Yorkshire
“I founded HowlBushcraft in 2014 as a means to share my insights and passion for the outdoors. Having spent the majority of the last 20 years exploring the woodlands of the UK, I wanted to create a series of courses to allow people to engage with natural world in a very practical way. It has long been my belief that making use of our natural world in a succinct and respectful way can only act to bring us closer to it, and that through thoughtful, concise skills we can disencumber our adventures in the wild."
Jamie Dakota - Founder & Chief Instructor
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.
