In addition to the "basics: ( that's all you get from most other courses) our classes include these skills:
PRIMITIVE SKILLS/HUNTER GATHERER
Our ancestors used basic primitive skills on a daily basis in order to survive and as a matter of routine everyday life. For thousands of years these skills remained basically the same and were passed on to generation after generation. The foundation skills, i.e., the skills most experts consider the core and truly “primitive skills are the ability to make fire, cordage and to shape flint and stone. Once these core skills are mastered they can be combined to produce all others. For instance: without the ability to make a suitable cord ( string) it would be impossible to make a bow drill. Without the ability and knowledge to find or shape stone it would be very difficult to prepare food, cut wood for tools, shape tools or to make fire. Without the ability to make fire – well basically, life would be tough. Quite obviously, mastering each of these three basic core skills is considered a necessity for primitive survival.
Our Primitive Skills Course is designed to provide each student with the training to master each of these core skills. We’ll start by learning the fundamentals of shaping stone , (flintknapping) and bone to make our basic tools and weapons. Using our newly made stone tools we’ll collect natural plant material and then learn how to process and prepare the material to make cordage that we can use for our bow drill, hunting bows, shelters, containers etc. We'll make hide and resin glue, make and set some deadfalls and snares to trap small game, make some hunting weapons and a few other, truly primitive utensils that ancient man would have used.
The cost for this course is $175.00 per person. Group rates available This is a 2 day class and the class size is limited to 16 students.
