July 10, 2010
11:00 amto4:30 pm

Lawrence Clark from BushCraft Ventures will set up camp outside our doors this Saturday in Aboyne.  Lawrence is a bushcraft expert who plied his trade with Ray Mears and was only one of three people in the UK  to receive the prestigious ‘Ray Mears Instructors knife’ -an acknowledgement of his highly developed skills. As part of his work he spent time in the Arctic living with the Psami (Lapps) peoples of Northern Sweden.

On display will be clothing and equipment used in bushcraft and wilderness survival, including; clothing made from cotton, wool and furs, and cutting tools.

Demonstrations will take place on traditional fishing hooks manufacture, fire lighting , wood carving and simple steam bending.




Many bushcrafters are aware of Hilltrek Ventile products such as the Braemar Smock  and the Ventile poncho. Our staff will be on hand  to discuss the properties of Ventile and some of our new innovations including Cotton Analogy.
