Homeschool Program – Outdoor Skills: Mastery of Fire

January 16 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

When we consider the course of humanity’s development, mastery of fire was one of the big leaps.  Besides providing warmth, light, a means to cook food, and even a way to protect oneself, it was also a tool that helped us get food, modify the landscape, and create.  As we learn the history of fire and its many uses, we will be putting ancient skills to the test as each participant makes a basic tool that our ancestors would’ve mastered:  a coal-burned spoon. Ages 8 years and up.
Cost is $10 per person
