The Event: Make Fire the Ancient Way - by spark and friction

Dates: 07 Apr 16

Location: Young Wood, Staple Fitzpaine TA3 5AZ

10am - 5pm

Learn the ancient survival art of creating fire by friction using a bowl drill or by dropping sparks onto natural tinders and build a camp fire.  The course will include introductions to fire steels, bow drills, fire pistons, natural tinders, fire lays and plenty of time to practise with them all.  Then the challenge will be to choose a technique, create an ember, build a fire and boil a kettle! 

Cost: Adults £45, children over 10 £15. Booking essential.
