Friction Fire

with Louis Falank Jr


Bowdrill & Handdrill Techniques

Cover fire starting material selection, craftsmanship and techniques. Working in a group, or individually, we will use knives and synthetic cord for practice and discuss and make natural and synthetic rope alternatives. The feeling you get when you create an ember and breathe life into a tinder bundle as it bursts into flame is a powerful experience. Tuition includes materials.

Lou Falank Jr., owner of Mountain Bear Programs/Guide Service & instructor at Maine Primitive Skills School, has worked and volunteered with programs at camps and schools across ME, NY & PA.
