Fire by Friction Workshop
One day intensive! 10am-5pm
Used by all of our ancestors for cooking, warmth and light, fire still plays a tangible role in our daily lives. In this one-day workshop we will introduce the Bow Drill technique of fire by friction, a reliable and time tested fire making device. Participants will learn a variety of applicable skills like knife safety, woodcarving, material selection, and cordage making. It's a rewarding sensation to build a fire in this ancient way. After a bit of carving and elbow grease, an ember is born from the friction and blown into flames. With some practice this skill can be used to make a fire in diverse weather conditions with only locally available materials.
This private workshop will be held at The Sharpening Stone property near Sunny Valley, Oregon.
