About the Event

Fire has captivated man since beyond the record of time. Harnessing it's power has enabled humanity to dominate the world. During this course we explore ancient fire lighting and how the use of fire has developed over time, in turn leading to the progression to more modern techniques. You will practice creating fire using many different techniques, such as from the sun, matches, lighters, chemicals and ultimately friction fire.We will look in depth at how to build a bow drill set, using materials that can be found locally, then establish and develop correct posture and technique.We introduce the concept of “leave no trace”, thereby ensuring that the fire site is left as it was found. Open fires not permitted in the majority of public areas and generally only on private land with with landowner permission, so we spend some time discussing alternatives. Tea/coffee and biscuits included. Please bring a packed lunch.Tickets are non-refundable unless the event is cancelled by the organisers. Tickets are transferable up to 28 days before the event.
