Event description

Description

Focusing on the bow drill we will learn the basic principles of firelighting without matches. Bow drills will be supplied to use and we will give you some ideas for how to make your own at home.

Get in touch with your inner hunter gatherer. Creating an ember and fire with a bow drill is a fantastic sense of achievement. It is hard work and requires perseverance. Great for keeping yourself amused when on camping trips, sharing with others and setting yourself a challenge!

This course is held outside in our Water Vole Woodland. There is uneven ground. Please call if you want to check access needs before booking.

Adults only.

Please bring lunch. Hot drinks provided.
