Petersburg, Petersburg, NY 12138, USA
The BIPOC friction fire workshop is an overnight experience to learn and practice the art of fire birthing. The group will participate in a land walk to identify trees and other materials to make a bow drill kit. Participants will learn carving techniques and knife safety and begin carving their own bow drill or hand drill kit. We will spend our second day together fine tuning our kits, learning about tinder and fire lays, and working on getting a coal. We will talk about the history of fire birthing and how to bring friction fire into your life as a regular practice.
We will end our first day together with a potluck dinner. Participants are responsible for bringing their own food. Please bring enough for lunch and dinner on day #1 and breakfast and lunch on day #2.
This entire program is held outside.
Accessibility: This workshop involves using knives, hatchets, and other tools. It involves a lot of crouching, bending, and physical exertion. It involves venturing off into the forest and the articulation that is a part of that.
