I regularly work in a number of venues in Wales, Castle Green where we put up a shelter to work in the summer months, local community halls, National Woollen Museum and the annual Bushmoot event in July/ August at Merthyr Mawr.
National Woollen Museum
This is where I live and in the summer months we are able to work outside under canvas. It is a beautiful spot next to a small woodland.
The Bushmoot is an opportunity for individuals and families with an interest in Bushcraft to gather together and expand their knowledge through mutual skill sharing.
The Moot runs for nearly two weeks and you’re welcome to come for all of it or any part you feel like. The main workshop days, we call the ‘Core’ days, are in the middle of the Moot.
It doesn’t matter whether you are experienced or new to bushcraft, everyone is welcome. The days either side of the ‘Core’ are camping days which give individuals the opportunity to practise their Bushcraft skills, attend courses, socialise, visit the local area or just relax and enjoy the natural setting.
The Site is nearly 100 acres, mainly of beautiful woodland with a sandy soil. There are toilets, showers, a washing up area around the edges of the main building and there are a number of fresh water taps away from the main building. You can camp nearly anywhere, there are quiet areas and areas where people stay up a bit longer and are a bit louder – we can point out which direction to go once you’ve arrived.
