Open Skills Day

Please join us for our next Open Skills Day! Visit our calender to determine when the next OSD is scheduled.

Primal Knowledge hosts a special "Open Skills Day" about once a month. This free event gives you a taste of what you might experience in a class and allows you to socialize with other members of the primitive skills community.

Our Projects

primitive bake oven

The types of projects we do on Open Skills Days can be somewhat experimental. They may be activities to try unfamiliar primitive techniques or activities in preparation for an upcoming class.

Past events have included constructing a primitive bake oven, stripping poplar bark, and boiling down the syrup from maple taps.

How to Participate

Please bring any tools and materials that you think may be helpful.

The day starts at 9:00am. You will need to pack a lunch or snacks if you plan to stay all day.

There is NO charge for this event. Open Skills Days, are not structured, and people come and go, and are free to work on their own projects, as well as the noted activity. As an experimental day we will be learning together.

Unless otherwise noted, "Open Skills Days" are located at Primal Knowledge's Home Location: 11640 Buffington Rd. Woodsboro, MD 21798.

If you are considering attending, you may let us know through the "Contact Us" button at the top of this page; or use the form below, however it is not required to attend.
