Hands-on Hunter-Gatherer Skills Workshop

Posted in Events, Lectures

A hands-on workshop focused on ancient living skills, including using friction to make fire, will be offered free, Tuesday, March 26, at 7 p.m., at the Healy Senior Center, 456 Briceland Rd., in Redway.

The workshop, led by North Coast resident Tamara Wilder, will look at skills used around the world by hunter-gatherer peoples.

Wilder, who has been researching and teaching these skills since 1989, will lead participants in twisting natural materials into string, using primitive tools to drill and shape stone beads and to use friction tools to make fire.

The workshop is the last in the annual winter lecture series hosted by the Bureau of Land Management King Range National Conservation Area and the Lost Coast Interpretive Association.
