This 2 day class will provide
you with individual instruction and attention to take
you through a step by step process that will teach you
how to make fire without matches in more ways than you
Day 1 we will cover Knife Sharpening, One Match
Fires and the 3 most common fire making methods -
Flint and Steel, the Bow Drill and the Hand Drill. If
you ever wanted to impress your friends using any one
of these on your next campout, this is one sure "fire"
method to do so.
We will start the day with learning the One Match Fire
the progress to Flint and Steel, where you will
actually make the "char-cloth" that you will use to
start the fire with flint found here in Ohio.
Once you're successful with this method, we'll go on
to the "rubbing two sticks together" method of the Bow
Drill and take you step by step to through the
procedure to get fire with this ancient technique. You
will then have the opportunity to make all of the
components that are needed, and then learn to use them
yourself. Toward the end of the day, we will cover the
techniques (and tricks) associated with the more
difficult method of making fire called the Hand Drill.
On Day 2 we will
begin with the more exotic primitive ways to make fire
such as the pump drill, fire piston and the fire plow
before going into modern ways such as using the desert
or using antifreeze
or brake fluid from your car.
The afternoon will be devoted to a workshop in which
you will pick a project (or projects) to take home a
Fire Piston, Kabuki Stick, Pump Drill or a Mini or
Micro Bow Drill set.
A supply fee for the actual cost of materials will
apply to the Fire Piston and the Pump Drill
projects. All other project materials are
included in the course fee.
