Something about this skill speaks to an ancient part in all of us. It is so empowering and satisfying to know that if needed you can make a fire from materials found on the landscape. Experienced Vilda instructors will demonstrate and teach the process of making fire by friction, with focus on good form and materials that make this skill easier to learn. An especially nice skill to have during such a cold winter. Its pretty special to light the fire place by friction.

Since its almost Valentine's day this class could be a fun activity to bring that special someone to and light a fire by friction together. Fire by friction is also quite an impressive skill to attract a special someone with :)

We will cover the basics of:

  • Bow Drill
  • Hand Drill
  • Tinder
  • Fire Tipi and Structures
  • Fire Safety

Unusually for us, this class is for adults only. Fire by friction is a regular part of our programming for kids, so if your kids are interested just sign them up for one of our children's programs.
