Bushcraft Fire Skills - 1 Day Training Course

This course offers you a very comprehensive look at the different means of fire lighting, including traditional flint and steel, friction, solar etc; types and uses of fires; resource gathering; siting of fires; safety considerations and much more.

On our other bushcraft courses firelighting sessions have proved very popular and so we decided to expand the topic further with a dedicated course to look in detail at the subject. 

You’ll have the opportunity to experiment with different tinders, practise blowing embers into flame, and then try and consolidate what you’ve learnt by trying your hand at bow-drill friction fire lighting.

Utilise an open fire to provide you with lunch, normally consisting of rustic bread making, which can be complimented with small game or fish.

Please get in touch with us if you are interested in booking a Fire Skills day for your group.
