What's Included

Fire has long been a tool for connection throughout human history. It has been used to light our way in the night, gather around for stories, cook our food, warm our bodies, and fertilize our fields. In this workshop, we will explore the ancient art of making fire by friction. We will learn how to harvest, create, and use our fire kits. As well as prepare tinder bundles and build an effective fire structure that will work in all weather conditions (wind, rain) with wet or damp materials. This will be a full day with lots of hands-on work. You will go home with a fully functional fire kit and the skills to practice on your own. In this course you will learn: *How to harvest effective fire making materials from the land *Two different methods of making fire by friction *Harvest and create natural tinder bundle *How to harvest and prepare firewood in the northwest (wet/dry conditions) *How to build an effective fire structure for different situations (weather, warm, scout, etc..)
