**********************
Previous years have seen either John Lord or his son Will Lord run superb flint knapping workshops at the BCUK Bushmoots, this year is going to be a slightly different......


Because this years Bushmoot we will have John, Val and Will Lord! :D

John and Val Lord whom you may recognise from flint knapping scenes in numerous TV programs including the TV series Ray Mears 'Bushcraft' on BBC2 and as the instructor of the Primitive Technology & Ancient Skills courses at Woodlore.


Will Lord who has also made numerous TV appearances and runs 'beyond 2000BC'


On the Saturday (2nd Aug):

Will Lord will be running an all day flint knapping workshop, with places for 10 people. (5 places have already been taken by the Full members who had first call, so 5 spaces remain)

On the Sunday (3rd Aug):

John and Will Lord will be running an all day flint knapping workshop, with places for
20 people. (5 places have already been taken by the Full members who had first call, so 15 spaces remain)


There will be a small additional charge of £15 per person to attend the flintknapping workshops, this covers the costs of materials and travel expenses as the Lords live at the other end of the country and as there is no natural flint near the moot site they will be bringing it all with them!

Payment must be made in cash to the Lords on the day

Please let us know as soon as possible if you wish to attend, due to the limited class size places will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. Please do not put in a request unless you are certain you will be in attendance.

Requests for a place should be made on this thread, along with a PM to myself with your details, name + contact number
