Learn about fire by friction!


We are very sorry this event will be post-poned until further
notice. In the next two weeks, we hope to find a nice afternoon to have
this workshop out by the rope swing. If you are interested please
contact Ryan at rdgill07@stlawu.edu. Thanks for your interest!

Come learn about the magic and skill of fire-making. The Greenhouse is offering a workshop on friction fire; together we will be learning, experimenting and teaching about traditional fire-making techniques.

White cedar, basswood, mullen, goldenrod, burdock, white pine! Why these? Learn about the natural materials (local species from the kip tract)you will need to make your own hand-drill or bow drill kit. Then makeit yourself!
