It has been 15 months since I have added to this blog and 18 months since I've done a workshop. Unless Covid rears it's head again I will be having my Primitive Skills 101 on Saturday, November 6, 2021.
Since last March when the shutdown started I have immersed myself in the study and taste of the edible world. We would all like to have the skill set to kill an animal with a homemade bow or trap, and that is a worthy skill, but it is the plant world that will feed us the easiest. We all need to be able to ID the most basic edible plants, the ones that work best for cordage and the ones that are used for friction fire. It is one thing to start a bow drill fire if someone hands you the materials to use, it is a totally different ball game to be able to ID/gather these materials yourself in any season. I will be placing a much bigger emphasis on plants in my next workshop.
I apologize if I sound like an 'ambulance chaser' BUT the past 18 months have shown me just how important the skill sets are in my 101 workshop.
