Weekend In The Woods - July 2007

Photo Essay

Last weekend, CELT - the Centre for Environmental Living and
Training - held their annual summer gathering called the
weekend in the woods in Bealkelly woods in County Clare.

CELT, a registered charity, are based in Scariff and have among
their objectives increasing Environmental awareness, Nature
Conservation and Keeping alive Traditional Countryside Skills
and Crafts.

We had heard good things about this gathering and decided to
check it out for oursleves. Enrolling in a Bushcraft course
was our preferred option though it was hard to choose as there
was quite an array on offer. From Wood Carving to Herb Lore,
Greenwood Furniture Making to the enticing sounding Hemp-Lime
Plastering and more besides. For us it was Bushcraft which,
according to the CELT website, was 'An introduction to the
fundamental principles of survival in the wilderness'.
Suitably armed with our tent and penknives we set off for the
woods.

... we learned how to make a long bow and a fishing pole from lengths of Hazel. We wandered the woods and canoed to an island in the lake. All the while regaled with tales of survival against the odds by our tutor and host, Del Harding.
