Join Earthroots instructor Shane Brown for a day of learning techniques on how to make a friction fire, cook over the fire and gather materials to make your own fire kit.
Fire is one of the essential tools for survival in the wilderness, as well for daily life. As humans, we use fire for cooking, heating homes, making ceramics and anything metal or plastic, and much more. The byproducts of a wood fire (charcoal and ashes) have many uses on their own, from soil amendment to making soap and charcoal pencils. In this class you will get to harvest natural materials to make your own “fire kit”, practice ancient techniques of making fire by friction (rubbing sticks together), and practice using fire for cooking with no modern cookware. Fire is something that brings us together as humans. Come add your spark to the fire, and learn old skills that you can still use today.
