Sunday Afternoon Bushcraft
A twice-monthly, family-friendly workshop covering a wide array of wilderness skills.
Come join us every other Sunday afternoon for an educational, affordable bushcraft clinic. We’ll cover a different wilderness skills topic every class – it may range across the spectrum from basics like firecraft and water procurement to projects such as tool and container carving. Every session will have a hands-on portion where you’ll have a chance to work on a project and build your skills, and free time where you can practice a skill of your choosing. You’ll be able to work with our wide range of woodland tools and resources, while being guided by our instructors to ensure that you learn these skills the right way, every time. The topics we cover will be announced on the registration page and social media at the beginning of the month. This is a family-friendly event and kids are always welcome. Bring a picnic lunch and come prepared to spend the afternoon!
12/2 - Art of the Baton
Crafting basic tools from the materials around us is one of the core aspects of being human. This upcoming Sunday Afternoon Bushcraft will focus on crafting a multipurpose baton, and learning how to use it. The baton is one of the most important bushcraft projects to master, as it is arguably the most useful handcrafted tool in the woods. You can use it to process firewood, pound stakes into the ground, hunt small game, dig holes, even sharpen your knife… and much more. During this course, you’ll make your own baton to take home with you, and then practice several of the skills associated with it. This is an especially great course for kids. So come prepared to get your hands dirty, do some whittling, and make the best primitive multitool ever!
Cost: $39 (Kids 12 and under: $19)
Course Duration: ½ day, 2pm-7pm
Course Location: SARCRAFT Proving Ground, Cherokee County, Georgia.
