Flyer version: Bushcraft in January – PDF
This Saturday, January 16, 2016
Full Day Pass $50/person or Per Track Price $30/person
Spaces are limited to 12 participants.
Jason and Sera Drevenak, homesteaders and special forces trainers for wilderness survival, are coming to Broadlands Nature Center in January, February, and March.
This is a rare opportunity to learn from two experts in the field. They typically only share their wisdom at large earthskills gatherings or at their own location as there is so many traditional tools that they must bring. But in a unique merger with Broadlands they have consented to come to our community to teach ancient crafts in re-wilding. January 16th they will teach natural cordage and basketry, soap making (by creating your own lye) with bear fat and goat milk, and buckskin working along with knife care and spoon making. (only 12 slots available)
Classes are meant for mature older children and adults since real tools will be used to make certain products. These are NOT demonstration classes. You will learn 100% of the process and make with your own two hands. Parent and child may come together with only one entrance fee, but will leave with only one single bundle of product that they work on together.
Full Day Pass (combine classes as you like) – 8:30 am – 6:00 pm – $50
Track 1 – Basketry & Cordage – 8:30 am – 1:00 pm – $30
Track 2 – Saponification – Make your own soap of bear fat, fresh goat milk, etc.) 10:00 am – 3:00 pm – $30
Track 3 – Buckskin Bags & Carving Wooden Spoons – 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm – $30
