Early man discovered that striking a piece of a hard rock — like flint, chert or quartz with iron ore and steel produced a spark hot enough to start a fire. Of course, they had to understand that a process and knowledge of tinder materials would greatly increase their success of igniting a fire.
In this easy, 3-hour workshop students are provided with the natural materials they need to learn this process. Students will also learn ways to manufacture charcloth from simple, everyday items.
