At COTEF we love practicing our skills. There’s never an excuse to be bored after you learn some of the old ways. You’ll start following tracks in the ground, wonder if you can make cordage from that plant in the yard, or see if you can make a bow drill fire from an unknown wood. The skills that we teach are sacred to us all. Without them we wouldn’t be here today, and without them we may not be here tomorrow.
Check out some of the skills here to either get a taste of what we teach, or to gain some new inspiration for the next project.
