Rub sticks together and make fire!

Tap into your wild self as your use your brain, muscles, and sweat to spin one piece of wood into another until the smoke comes pouring out! Not always as easy as it sounds, to become a reliable bow driller takes years of dedication. But we've got to start somewhere. Beginners typically have a 75% success rate getting a fire going their first try, with proper coaching and a fierce determination. But of course its not ALL about making the fire. In this intro workshop will also cover land ecology and topography, tree species ID, wood selection, and carving techniques all so you can return home with the know-how to build a set on your own, and show off to your friends!

    For whatever reason, this meet up was healing for me. Making fires outside in the wintertime is a skill we all should probably have a good handle on, its great practice in the winter, when we need fire the most. So great to meet the people who made it out.
