Our Primitive Skills Intensives empower children to learn a new bushcraft skill each season. Winter is FIRE!

4 weeks
4 sessions
4 fires
4 real

These are hands-on sessions designed to build the capacity of children to craft fire with safety, awareness and skill. It is designed to assist them to identify risk and strategies for managing it, the fire triangle, and how to construct fires for different purposes including:
– cooking
– tool making
– medicine brewing
– clay firing
– ecodyeing
– warmth and light
– fuel efficiency
– wet weather fire
as well as the peace and power of the heart of the fire.

Participants attend either Wednesday, Thursday Friday for the 4 week intensive. Cost is for the full program, and participants will make an ember bowl, clay pot, herbal ‘burn gel’, and a tinder pouch.

Natureweavers are honored to be mentoring this program for ‘middle childhood’. This period of childhood sees the ongoing development of self, as unique and separate, alongside the development of an increasing connection to nature – this duality is fertile ground where the seed for lifelong earth stewardship behaviour can be planted. It is a crucial stage of childhood development from an earth sustainability perspective and we are compelled to mentor children of this age at this time with content that we know – practically and intuitively – and love.
