Friction Fire

with Louis Falank Jr


Class has begun

Bow Drill & Hand Drill

Techniques We will cover fire starting material selection, craftsmanship, and techniques. Students will be encouraged to work as individuals and in groups while we use knives and synthetic cord for practice. Discuss and make natural and synthetic rope options as well. The feeling you get when you breathe life into a tinder bundle and it bursts into flame is a powerful experience.

Note: Class will be both in and out of doors so please dress appropriately. Tuition includes materials.

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