Upcoming events (5)
Join us in the woods as we play with both modern and primitive sources of light. We'll showcase a variety of current products on the market in addition to making some bushcraft torches, wooden rocket stoves and the like. From showing/comparing primitive candles using animal fat to modern day homemade micro candle options on display (that we will make as well) - this event will be covering a large variety of lighting options if and when the power goes out. Check out a very brief video clip of one of the items we'll be making here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipry4Ya1K20 No experience necessary. Participation in making anything is optional. This is a hands-on workshop that is being held outside. Please dress for the conditions and please bring a portable saw (if you have one) and a knife – if you wish to participate in making your own torch. There is no cost to attend or participate at this event.
This is a great opportunity to test out your winter gear. We'll be camping out overnight in the woods. If you don't have any gear and you've never camped out overnight in the woods before this would be a good chance to pop in briefly and see the various types of gear brought by participants. This event will take place immediately following our 'Primitive & Modern Outdoor Survival Lights' event. This event will be held outside. Yes, there is a cell phone signal. No, there are no facilities of any kind including washroom facilities. Participants will be expected to bring their own food and water. If you have any questions at all please fee free to ask. Directions: We'll be camping approximately 500 meters in a north-west direction from the parking lot (south of the train tracks).
