Courses, Talks and Demonstrations

We run occasional courses and historical talks and demonstrations on such topics as:

  • - how to properly skin and butcher a deer
  • - how to smoke meat, fish and cheese in the traditional way
  • - building and using earth ovens
  • - how to make jerky, fruit leathers, pemmicans and so on.


We can cover a wide range of historical eras and themes, medieval, Napoleonic, civil war, wild west pioneers, pirate and many more.

Our demonstrations are always popular at events.
