Primitive Skills and Wilderness Crafts

Get out in the dirt, and get back to the basics!



I have always enjoyed getting down to the basics and understanding how things work, and one way in which I like to do this is to get out in the woods and wilderness and learn primitive methods of making and doing some of the things we take for granted in today's consumer society. Making fire without matches, producing everything from cordage (string, rope) to baskets, pots and bowls for gathering and cooking wild foods to making clothing and footwear from animal hides--these are great ways to re-introduce one's self to the fundamentals of life, and learn the origins and value of the things we use in everyday life without a second thought.



Join me as I give a brief glimpse at some of the various wilderness skills and crafts I enjoy practicing!
