This hands-on session will cover basic fire starting and building skills, from primitive to modern. Winter offers us an opportunity to practice some of the challenges and advantages of finding good tinder and firewood, during a season when fires elemental gifts are most needed. All participants will have the opportunity to practice firemaking from friction (bow drill, pump drill, hand drill), flint and steel, iron striker rods) and igniting their own tinder bundles.
