Bushcraft Demonstration

This event has already taken place.

Watch Ray Noakes demonstrate different techniques of bushcraft from throughout history.

Ray is a multi media artist who specialises in stone age and bushcraft workshops. Witness items being whittled including spears, boomerangs, spoons and fish hooks to name just a few. He will have a camp and artifacts on display for show and tell, as well as items for sale.

Ray has contributed to several events at The Forum over the years, including dinosaur clay modeling at Makers Month 2018, and carving a giant pumpkin for Halloween a few years earlier.

You can have a go too. Ray is also holding workshops at the Festival. You can book on a session to make your own talking stick or spatula on Sat 16 Feb and Mon 18 Feb.
