Primitive Fire  Starting  with Huw Jones

The main aim of this session is to produce an ember using a friction bow drill which you built earlier in the day.

This ember will then be coaxed into flame by using coal extenders and natural tinder materials.

All consumables and cutting tools will be supplied, and there will be a talky bit / demonstration on the safe use of all the equipment beforehand.

We will also explore other methods of making fire, such as chemical, electrical, solar, flint/steel and compression.

Dress for the outdoors.  Something to kneel on would be handy.  Bring lunch, a mug for campfire coffee break, and plenty of elbow grease..

A more detailed email will be sent to you on booking.

10.30am – 4pm.  Limited Places   £35.00

Bookings no longer allowed on this date.
