Biblins Bushcraft (Graeme Wardle adventure-training trading as)
The outdoors is our passion, bushcraft is our craft
Now based at Lord's Wood, The Doward in the heart of the Forest of Dean, it's the ideal setting to inspire you to push that comfort zone just a little.
Between us we jointly have a worrying sixty plus years experience in delivering outdoor learning.
From delivering BELA (Basic Expedition Leader Award) to trips to the Alps. From Forest school with primary aged children to countryside management often engaging the more challenging young people.
Meet the team:
Sue as ever remains a mainstay to our business from admin to Bannock bread maker. In 2007 Sue brought balance to the force by qualifying as a Level 3 Forest School Practitioner thus giving our existing outdoor programmes that label that schools often need. In between being mother, school librarian and reluctant housewife, Sue has managed to keep a youthful enthusiasm for outdoor learning.
Graeme has always had real passion for the outdoors, mountaineering and paddling in his youth but wild camping and especially bushcraft and survival techniques from childhood in his local woodland and Saddleworth moorland.
As well as being a qualified Bushcraft leader Graeme is a very experienced Outdoor Pursuits Instructor, Qualified Teacher and Youth Worker holding a raft of outdoor qualifications (CertEd, ML, SPA, BCU K2 GNAS, L3 ncfe bushcraft leader, L2 Mtbike) and APIOL, (Accredited Practitioner of the Institute of Outdoor Learning)
Steve has been a valued member of our outdoor team for over a decade but as from March 2012 he became our full time instructor. As well as the same passion for all things wild and outdoors, Steve has been a Youth worker and Project Manager and Probation Officer. In addition to his bushcraft skills and experience, his ability to engage and relax sometimes challenging young people has proved invaluable on some projects. see the testimonials.
