Expert tuition with experience from around the world

As well as being experienced in bushcraft in the UK, London Bushcraft founder Wendy Paton has also led 21 expeditions worldwide. During these trips Wendy has foraged for wild rhubarb in Mongolia; eaten live ants in Ecuador; gone mud fishing in Vietnam; tracked with the Kalahari Bushmen in Botswana; caught and eaten frogs for breakfast in Laos and picked enough wild blueberries in Ecuador to turn herself blue. These experiences allow Wendy to bring real depth of knowledge to the bushcraft and survival skills she teaches, and she has a strong focus on helping individuals and teams to grow and develop.
