Ditch the tech and get in touch with your inner hunter gatherer. We will learn the basic principles of fire lighting without matches - a great bushcraft skill! Creating an ember and fire with a bow drill leads to a fantastic sense of achievement as it is hard work and requires perseverance. Bow drills will be supplied to use and ideas given for how to make your own at home.
