Nice of you to stop by. My name is Johan, but usually I go by the name Sheepbushcraft. Except being active on Instagram and Etsy, I am a co-writer to the website Running With Sheep, that is run by my girlfriend Sanne. You can find her on Instagram as well under the name of Runningwithsheep.
I’m a bushcraft enthusiast, and love to make all sorts of things with my own two hands, using only the simplest of tools. My interests vary from primitive skills, to modern day survival, and everything in between. Leather work has become my specialty during the last few years, and it’s a craft I really enjoy practicing. For now just as a hobby, but in the future hopefully be pursued more professionally. Whenever I get the chance I like to go camping, boating or just do a bit of scavenging.
If you have any questions please feel free to send an email and i will try to answer you as soon as possible.
If you have a business and want to collaborate then you can always get in touch with me. I’m open for reviews on products as long as it is bushcraft related, and it has the Sheepbushcraft look and feel.
Thanks again for stopping by and taking the time to read!
I am passionate about leather work, and can spend hours working on all sorts of leather gear. A lot of the gear I use and show on Instagram is made by myself. I’m always on the lookout for army surplus bags and other goodies which I love to use for my up-cycled projects.
I do not have an electric sewing machine, so everything I make is done by hand. As a result things I make are a bit more expensive than commercially made products. It also means that every item is unique. I never make two of the same and all items have their own little flaws.
My Etsy shop is currently empty, because of a busy day job, but feel free to ask for custom orders by sending me an email. Just take in mind that it will take me a bit longer to make something, than a commercial company. When working on a different order all ready, it might also mean waiting some time before I start on your order. If all of the above isn’t an issue to you, and you still want me to make you something, then you know where to find me!
On my Instagram account I try to give you a glimpse into my life, and the things I’m passionate about. I started the account somewhere in 2015 with the help of RunningWithSheep. At first I was skeptical about it, and never could I have imagined what a life changer it would become. Through the years I’ve met so many people through this online community and even made some wonderful friends. I’m always open for questions, and if possible, I try to answer them. Sometimes however I miss questions or comments. If such is the case feel free to contact me and I will try to come back to you.
Donate for The Sheep Camper Van
In the hope to one day live a more nomadic life, I am saving up for a camper van. If you want to help me realize this dream, and you can spare a little: donations are so very welcome!
