WILD FIRE-MAKING (25 JUNE 2017)
Jun 25,2017 - Time: 10:30 am - 4:30 pm
Making fire without matches, using the ancient techniques of percussion and friction, is a truly empowering thing to do. It seems to touch a primal part of us humans and it's always a thrill when the flames burst forth.
On this day-long course you'll learn how to safely turn a spark or an ember into a fire that will hold its own. We'll be using ancient percussive methods and the timeless bow-drill friction method.
We'll look at the various tinder that's available for foraging and you'll learn how to prep them. This course is suitable for anyone who's always wanted to have a go... and also for anyone who'd like to develop their existing skills of fire-making.
We’ll also have time set aside for connecting to the woodland surroundings, making the day a nourishing as well as a learning experience.
Suitable for all levels, including beginners. Places limited to a maximum of 10 participants.
Make a weekend of it: join the Wild Cordage (string) course the previous day to enjoy a whole weekend in the woods.
