Matchless Firestarting!

$35

with Zack Rouda

Fire is a result of impact, compression, solar energy or friction. Ancient fire-making methods include the hand drill, bow drill, pump drill, fire plow, fire saw, fire thong and sparks caught from striking rocks. Bow drills have been used by humans around the world for thousands of years. Make and practice using a complete matchless firestarting bow drill kit - bow, spindle, handhold and fireboard - using a variety of locally sourced materials and a piece of cordage. Everyone will make a bow drill kit to take home! Please dress appropriately for the outdoors.
