What will be taught

All aspects of Fire safety will be discussed first.

This will include the participants safety, the safety of people around them and the safety of the immediate environment where we intend to light small fires.

How to behave around fire and where is a safe place to have a fire.


Understanding the 'fire triangle'

Understanding why you need a fire. It may be for warmth of cooking on etc.


All the children including parents/guardians with have plenty of opportunity to practice all the skills. 



Participants will practice various ignition techniques, using matches, ferro rods, prehistoric flint & steel and friction fire such as the bow drill. 


Experiment with different types of 'Tinder' materials, man made and natural. 

Building 'Tinder' or 'Bird Nest Bundles' and blowing them into flame.

Work with kindling and fuel to construct small fires. 


All the  small fires will be no bigger that a small side plate and will be on silver baking trays which can be lifted up off the ground. This reduces any burning damage to outdoor spaces.
