Event description

Description

The deep history of human development runs parallel to our ability to make, control and utilise fire. Starting a fire is taken for granted these days, like lots of other fundamental technologies, but the exercise of going back to first principles and trying out the different ways you make a fire is really very interesting and loaded with great science.


In this workshop you will get to try out the four key methods of making fire – using light, kinetic, chemical or electrical energy. We’ll start with the “sure fire” methods and then work up to the almost impossible, testing your skill and determination.

Before this however you’ll learn something even more important to the process than making the fire… its making something to burn, where we’ll learn the practical process of making charcloth The ready-made tinder that is an essential for every bugout bag or suburban survival bunker.


Requirements and prerequisites:

  • Participants must be over 16 years of age
  • Enclosed, flat footwear must be worn at all times
