FIRE, an immense natural power, it's been around since the beginning of time, it marks the difference between animal, and man, and sometimes even life and death.

People have always been fascinated by fire. Have you ever longed to walk into the woods and create fire using only the materials you find around you?

Many people you talk to have seen it done on television or film, fewer claim to know how to do it, and fewer still have actually attempted to create fire using primitive methods. But it is a very small band of people who have actually achieved it for themselves.

Knowing how, and being able to, light a fire, in a survival situation can be massively important. It brings warmth, comfort, safe drinking water, palatable food, signal fires for rescue and a huge boast to morale.

We must remember that fire is an ever present danger in the world, and must be treated with the utmost respect at all times.

There are many ways to start a fire. Spend a day studying and practicing this unique, fascinating and ancient skill that embodies the very essence of Bushcraft.

One Day General Fire Lighting Course - Introduction


FIRE is the fundamental starting point of man's development. Learn how to start a fire with what you can find around you. This skill can mean the difference between life and death in a survival situation. Learn what materials to seek out to achieve success in creating this most basic of needs. Learn what fire actually is, the various methods to create it, and help it grow.

One Day Friction Fire Lighting Course - Bow Drill


Although the hand drill is the most universal friction fire method in the world, the bow drill is probably the most dependable. It is certainly the most widely used today by wilderness skills teachers and students. The student of the bow drill will grow in several areas of study other than fire making. Whilst searching for the correct materials the student will gain knowledge of countless trees, shrubs and plants.

One Day Friction Fire Lighting Course - Hand Drill


The hand drill is the most universal friction fire lighting method in the world. It is also one of the most difficult to master, requiring a reasonable amount of physical strength, the ability to tolerate a few blisters in the early stages, and mastery of the technique. Once these are overcome however, and success achieved, the sense of satisfaction at joining that 'exclusive club' is immense.
