No Theme, No Instructor
Just a community hub for skills, stories, & time in the wild for adults.
Adult Skills Share Series is designed as a casual series of gatherings to practice and share ancestral and folk skills.
This is a quarterly opportunity to share skills but to also connect with each other, laugh, sing, share stories, offer gratitude, and sit by the fire.
Bring a skill to share or just come to learn. Here is a list of some skills that might be shared:
Making a bow drill kit and using it to start a fire
Building a debris hut (winter hardy)
Making a bowl and spoon using coal and sand
Making natural cordage
Making reed mats
Edible and medicinal plant identification
Making a primitive bow and arrow
Gatherings happen quarterly around the solstice with dates announced a month in advance.
Bring tools that you may need, especially if you are teaching a skill Bring a song if you like Bring an instrument if you like Bring food (a snack or dinner depending on the time) This is a free event and / or by donation. Participants are welcome to help cover the costs of firewood at the event, or donate online to the Guelph Outdoor School 'Next Child in the Woods' campaign.
This is a family friendly event series, though parents are responsible for their kids' care. We do not have a kid's program happening alongside the skill share. If you do have a skill to share, contact Jenni @ email@example.com.
