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!
5/5 - Sunday Afternoon Bushcraft Herbal Salve
The Cherokee believed that for every ailment that befell humankind, the world of plants provided a cure. This belief was shared by many cultures around the world, and for thousands of years, what we called medicine was practiced by the village shaman, healer, or medicine woman. In this half-day course, traditional Cherokee herbalist Vada Dodd will walk you step by step through the process of how to tap into those time-honored ways to make our SARCRAFT All-Purpose Healing Salve. If you’ve ever purchased this salve from the Outfitter Store, you know how effective it is. Far superior to an over-the-counter topical ointment, it heals cuts, scrapes, burns, and skin irritations almost before your eyes. It’s also great for your skin, and smells fantastic! If you want to reclaim the idea of safe, effective, homemade medicine, and make a few tins of salve to take home with you, claim your seat now!
