Description

A great way to learn a basic survival skill. Creating an ember and fire with a bow drill is hard work and requires perseverance but leads to a fantastic sense of achievement! We will learn the basic principles of fire lighting without matches, how to select materials, prepare a tinder bundle and nurture the precious spark into a flame! Bow drills will be supplied to use and ideas given for how to make your own at home.

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.
