Primal Fire Making Workshop

Sat Apr 13, 09:00 - Sat Apr 13, 16:00
Veld and Sea cabin



Saturday the 13th of April

9am - 4pm

Fire awakens a deep primal essence within us. It is one of our most ancient abilities and when we truly connect with this skill we provoke an awakening in our core quintessential human nature.

WHAT TO EXPECT: The day will begin with an integration exercise in to our natural surroundings. We will learn to become aware of the signs of nature, the bird language and heightened perception through expanding our senses.

We will then explore a few techniques of making fire – the bow drill, the hand drill, flint and steel. We will search for good tinder, kindling and gain a flame.

Lunch will be served by the Veld and Sea wild food foragers and cooks – a delicious seasonal inspired fire cooked meal, infused with adventure. Following this will be a story of fire from the San tradition.

After lunch you will be led through a process of making from scratch your own fire kit to take home from locally sourced materials. Whether you’re interested in wilderness survival, stories of the past, or you just love a fire cooked meal, you’ll leave this workshop confident in your knowledge of fire making! 

This workshop will be the first in a series of wilderness survival workshops facilitated by Earthskills Africa co-founder Rein Buyze.
