The Red Rose - Cultivating Fire!

This friction fire course is a 3 hour investment that will bring your fire making skills to the next level. We will break down all the parts of fire, understanding what, when, where, why and how much is needed for a successful spark. You will walk away with all the tools you need for your own bow drill including a fire board, bow, spindle, handhold and knowledge. You just then have put in the dirty time of practice. For this course you will need a solid knife with a fixed blade (ideally not foldable) and something you would realistically bring with you into the wilderness.

The flow of our day:

  • Introduction to cultivating fire
  • Tools and concepts of friction fire
  • Making your own fire tools (all materials are provided)
  • Practice Time
  • Open Q and A
  • Sewing seeds for future fires

Message from Josef:

Hey I’m Josef originally from Australia have now been in Canada for last 5.5 years. One of my biggest passions is nature connection and it is from this perspective that I offer Survival 101. Though the naturalists’ eye and spirit I find that I can look at the world in an interconnected way and communicate by learning the language of nature.

I feel it is important to create a space where like minded people can come together in community, practice skills together and to share knowledge and experience while bringing their questions to the table. To come back into living and sharing in a multigenerational community (village) brings us closer to working toward our true needs.

What To Bring On This Course

For this course you will need a solid knife with a fixed blade (ideally not foldable) and something you would realistically bring with you into the wilderness.
