Session Fire

A session dedicated to fire.
We will look at the history of firemaking together with the detailed theory of how fire actually happens.
We will look at 6 methods of creating fire including solar, chemical, electrical etc.. finishing with some friction fire lighting.
Alongside the creation of sparks and embers we will look at natural tinder for growing the sparks and then onto kindling and wood varieties best suited to different types of fire.

Discussions on fire could easily go on for several days as the subject is vast but this bitesize session should give you enough information to enable further research or practice on your own.

There will be plenty of time to practice the methods

Please note there is a separate session that deals with making and perfecting the bow drill.  Session 3 of the series may be taken before or after the general fire session.

Duration 4hours.

There are no upcoming events at this time.
