Traditional Skills

Primitive skills connect to the wild world in a way that reading a book, attending a lecture, or hearing a podcast can’t.

As this page develops, you’ll find How-To videos on a bunch of different primitive, traditional, and earth-based skills, including:

  • tracking
  • fire-by-friction
  • cordage with natural materials
  • tree ID
  • bird language
  • natural dyes
  • primitive shelters
  • foraging for wild edibles
  • wildflower ID
  • making beads
  • knotweed windchimes
  • spoon carving
  • etc etc!

So check back over the next few months as we develop content for this section. You can also check the blog and video gallery for ideas.
