Summer Campfire Series: Fire-making with Len Mackey

Event date and time
June 7, 2018 - 7:00 PM to June 7, 2018 - 9:30 PM
Event description

Want to learn to start a fire by hand? As is tradition, we're kicking off our summer campfire series by inviting you to come help us light the first fire of the season! Len Mackey will be joining us for an interactive evening learning the Earth's oldest ways of making fire with hand or bow drill. Once the fire is burning, we will enjoy the deep, peaceful power of songs from Native North America and Guinea West Africa, and learn how to play traditional rhythms during a hand-drumming demonstration by Len Mackey.
