"When Andy delivers Bushcraft skills on a training course, you know that you’ll learn something new, valuable and useful. His manner is engaging yet relaxed, and he has a palpable passion for the outdoors. I would highly recommend his training courses to anyone who wishes to learn Bushcraft skills, and develop as an outdoor activities leader. Andy has an instinctive ability to pitch his teaching to the unique needs of each client group, and his well-practiced camp and craft skills match and exceed those of any tutor I have learned from, on the numerous courses I have attended."

- J. Loftus, Forest School L3 Leader and Trainer

"I have attended several Bushcraft courses with Andy, which were hugely enjoyable, and I learned a lot! His teaching method was really relaxed but I learned something new almost every time he spoke to the group. I can’t recommend his courses enough and I’ll train with him whenever I get the opportunity."

- G. Lee, Scout Leader/youth worker

"Wildwood training opened my eyes to so many opportunities. Andy is a kind man with buckets of knowledge to share with everybody, within spending the full summer being involved with this man I have gone back to university a different person. Can't thank Andy enough for the opportunity he has given me and I have learnt more on a week’s training with him than I ever did growing up. The course was well run and very successful, would recommend to anybody!"

- N. Foote, Backcountry Survival

"I have seen Andy working with groups, and it is outstanding. The breadth of knowledge and skills that he imparts is incredible! He is very sociable and has a great eye for detail for the unskilled, and also gives a new insight to the person who already has Bushcraft skills, a must to experience."

- D. Myler

"I would highly recommend any course run by Andy Lewis, his passion for Bushcraft is infectious! I was lucky enough to be on the first WSL course he ran. The course was incredibly well run, Andy has the ability to tailor his education for each individual within the group! Making sure no one is left behind, or anyone is over stretched!"
