Enjoy a tech-free day learning how to make it from scratch!
We’ll begin by processing and twisting up Dogbane (Apocynum cannabinum) into strong practical cordage capable of binding saplings for a shelter, building a fish trap, lacing up shoes or stringing a traditional bow. Then, we will introduce the skills necessary to make a fire without using modern devices and materials. Fundamentals and components of the bow and hand drills will be demonstrated and taught as well as different natural tinders and coal extenders. You will have a new appreciation for fire after completing this wilderness class!
Welcome to the Wilderness prerequisite encouraged but not required.
