Self Reliance Workshop Series

This year we’re partnering with GALA ( a local non-profit) to offer a monthly workshop series on self-reliance. Workshops run the second Wednesday of every month and are $15. More information is our Self Reliance Workshop page. The upcoming workshops are:

  • 1/8 – Traditional Winter Gear, Snowshoes And Snowshoeing
  • 2/12 – Soap Making 101
  • 3/12 – Organic Cosmetics: Treat Your Skin To Chocolate
  • 4/9 – Intro to Fly Fishing: Gear, Knots & Casting
  • 5/14 – Fire By Friction
  • 6/11 – Book Binding: Coptic Stitch Bound
  • 7/9 – Natural Building Methods
  • 8/13 – Edible Wild Plants – Wild Food Walk
  • 9/10 – Sewing Machine Intro & Make Your Own Tote Bag
  • 10/8 – Beer Brewing Basics
  • 11/12 – Campfire Cooking; Dutch Oven, Reflector Oven And Pot Suspension Systems
  • 12/10 – The Simple Sauna; Making And Using

It’s an inexpensive way to get started with self reliance and bushcraft. To get a feel for what we’re trying to do, listen to a WMTW radio interview about the series with Tom Belluscio, Emily Richey, Tony Zore and Tim Smith.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
