Quest for Fire!
Our tribe has lost their fire! Join our intrepid band of hunter-gatherers as we travel the landscape gathering our materials to create fire! Using only what we find (no knives), we will work together to create a flame. We’ll also learn about edible, medicinal and useful plants and finish class with a variety of Stone Age fire kits to practice bow drill and hand drill!
I’ll share a story of how fire first came to the 2-legged peoples and offer tips about fire making from the many hundreds of Stone Age fires I’ve made over the past 35 years. This is a great class whether you’ve never started a Stone Age fire or you’ve started many! Everyone will learn a lot and have fun doing it!
This class is open to adults and children (age 6+).
Class happens rain or shine (though it will be harder if it’s raining!). The ability to start a fire under all conditions is an essential skill.
