Fire-by-friction Basics

This will be an introduction/review to making fire. All levels are welcome, whether or not you have made fire before. We will discuss materials, technique, physics and troubleshooting. We will practice bow-drill and (team) hand-drill. Kombucha, as always, will be available.

*Important: bring a knife, preferably fixed blade or with a sturdy hilt if it folds (no small Swiss Army knives, for example).
