An Ancient Skill
Making fire is a very ancient skill that our distant ancestors would have employed. Fire gives us warmth and light, dries our clothes, purifies our water, cooks our food, protects us from wild animals and can help us signal when lost amongst many other things. It is a very important skill to learn.
On this packed full day, you will learn how to make fire using a variety of techniques and methods; from the ultra modern to the ancient. You will walk away with a depth of knowledge that you can use anywhere in the world.
You will learn to recognise and gather the materials and natural tinders to use for this method of fire lighting. You will fashion your own bow drill set and learn how to use it and you can take your set away with you for further practice.
Accomplishment And Freedom
Learning fire by friction gives an individual an enormous sense of accomplishment and freedom knowing you can create fire at will using only nature’s materials. We will also look at fire lays and other methods of fire lighting such as flint and steel and methods used long ago.
