Achieving fire by friction is the archetypal bushcraft skill- it is also one of the hardest to learn. Often referred to as fire by frustration, this workshop will introduce you to the skills you will need to create an ember and achieve flame. We shall begin with an overview of the process, before getting straight on with the bows, drills and hearth boards. There will be an opportunity to head into the forest to locate and select the best woods to create your own bow drill set to take away and practice. We’ll stick the kettle over the fire so brews will be available throughout the day, bring a packed lunch, suitable clothing for being outside all day and heaps of patience!


Cost is £30 per person- booking is essential via BookItBee
