This Month's Open Skills Day:
Bake Oven Cooking June 16, 2012

We are holding an open skills day of primitive baking on June 16, 2012!

Open skills days are free and open to the public. During this open skills day, we will be conducting an experimental primitive foods project by constructing a primitive bake oven. The purpose of a bake oven, is to control and contain the heat produced by a fire.

You are welcome to join in the oven project or bring a project of your own to share during open skills day. Most likely we will have some roasted venison and fried vegetables to share at the end of the day. To attend, read more about it.

The focus this year will be on Survival Challenge Games and relaxing around the knapping pit. There are still spaces open for those who would like to share a skill. If you would like to attend, to learn more about this free event, go to

Next Month's Open Skills Day:
