March 7-8 – Primitive Pursuits Weekend Workshop: Friction Fire Intensive

Posted by  //  January 9, 2015  //  Calendar of Events

Saturday, 8am-6pm and Sunday 8am-4pm
Ages 18+ at 4-H Acres, 418 Lower Creek Road, Ithaca
Spend a weekend making fire with nothing but what the landscape provides! Some published survival books actually state that although friction fire makes a good demonstration, it is very difficult and rarely works in survival situations. If this is the case, what did our ancestors do for thousands of years? The reason we are here today is because these skills work! This workshop will give you all the basics for success at friction fire making and give you the tools to explore it on your own so you take it as far as you want to push it. Sliding Scale Fee: $175 – $225. Call 607-272-2292 ext. 195 or visit us online at
