with Zach Fisher
Slate is a softer sedimentary stone that is found in abundance in our area. We will be shaping and sharpening them into pendants and harvest blades using the methods that our ancestors used. Making a knife or pendant with your own two hands creates an empowered object that is perfect for a necklace, altar, or out harvesting your favorite plants.
Zach Fisher has studied primitive skills at Tom Brown Jr's Tracker School, which he considers to be the beginning of the education he was always looking for. He began teaching in 2011 and has since co-founded Earth Living Skills. He teaches and leads guided adventures for Discover Outdoors as well as several other earth skills based programs. His goal as a teacher and a student is to foster a deeper connection with natural world in the spirit of discovery and the maximizing of our human potential.
