Fire Craft (1 day)

Just as with any wildcrafted trade, the art of making fire from the landscape requires a tactful awareness of one's surroundings—of which types of trees make the best kindling and where those trees like to grow, which types of bark make the best tinder, which fungus or seed fluff to add to my tinder to ensure my fire will light?

The journey is truly endless in how one's knowledge of fire can introduce you to so many new elements in the landscape. This class is one full day of focus on all the accoutrements that make for a successful wildcrafted fire. We will cover everything from fire making, fire building, tending, types of wood, proper arrangement for open fire cooking, tinders, coal extenders, torches, and more!

This is an opportunity to step into a whole new confidence in your fire skills, as well as to see the woods with new eyes—the ultimate convenience store of fire materials.
