Nick has been teaching outdoor living skills and rural crafts since 2004 and in particular the use of natural materials in indigenous, primitive and rural crafts. Nick has focused on plant fibre and tree bark basketry and traditional bow making.


Nick takes great enjoyment from the whole process of harvesting through to creating with natural materials. Using an object that you have made from materials you have harvested and prepared is extremely satisfying.

Whilst taking inspiration from and researching traditional and indigenous crafts and skills, Nick adds to this his own careful design, creativity and high standard of finish to his work.
