Mysteries of Ancient Fire

January 28 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join Mark Denzer and follow the progression of humanity’s relationship with fire! Take a look through ancient and modern lenses to discover how we have

manipulated this powerful element through time. From ceremonial and ritual uses to transforming landscapes and mundane daily uses, fire has been our partner since time immemorial.

After the lecture, participate in hands-on training. Mark’s 25 years of experience with primitive technologies and experimental archeology will guide you in your own experience of creating fire. Through friction, percussion, and tool use, you will gain first hand experience in ancient ways and join an ancient lineage of honoring fire! Registration required.

Please register by calling 618-457-4836.
