Learn the art of making fire without the use of matches, using a bow drill and flint and steel. In this workshop, participants will learn how to harvest fire starting materials from the landscape, how to create their own bow drill kit from natural materials, and they will also have the opportunity to practice both techniques (i.e. bow drill and flint & steel) for starting a fire by friction. Participants will also learn about fire making ethics and other considerations. Enjoy a wildcrafted snack prepared over the fire.
