Bow Drill Basics – Jacksonville, FL

April 13 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

$45.00

Learn to harvest the materials for a bow drill, make one and use this primitive, friction fire making tool. You will learn how to make an effective tinder bundle to catch the bow drill’s ember, using this to create a primitive fire.

The drill offers an ancient method of starting fire without matches or a lighter, a method that applies frictionto generate heat. The heat eventually produces an ember in the burnt sawdust. The ember is tiny, smaller than the head of a cigarette, and fragile. Once the ember is formed it is carefully placed into a “tinder bundle” (a bird’s type nest of stringy, fluffy, and combustible material). Once the ember is in the tinder bundle it is then carefully nurtured and coaxed into flame. Once the tinder bundle bursts into flame, it is placed into the fuel that has been assembled ready for ignition.
