We will walk you through the Best Way To Make A Fire and view a variety of materials to see how they burn as tinder. We will start the bow drill portion of the workshop by reflecting the symbolism of the parts of the bow drill kit, and you will realize why this method of fire-by-friction was preferred (and superior even to matches) for lighting fires in cold and wet climates. It should only take 10 seconds to create a coal if your kit is well constructed.
Join us for this or any of our special classes in Puyallup celebrating Independence Week. Adults and families with children are invited to join us. This class is being designed and taught by Wolf College apprentices under direct supervision of founder Chris Chisholm. Expect a class that provides you with generous information, hands-on experiential learning, and heart-felt inspiration. Pre-payment is not required to RSVP but we will ask you to fill out a post-class evaluation, and make a $15-$25 contribution afterwards based on your financial situation and your level of satisfaction with instructors in training.
