Basic living skills such as making string from plant & animal fibers, making fire by twirling a wooden shaft, making & using stone tools, tanning furs & skins, and identification of useful edible & medicinal plants are everyone's heritage. Without these skills our ancestors would have perished and none of us would be here today. If they did them, then so can we.

In today's hi-tech modern world, it's easy to lose sight of the basics, but we believe that many ancient skills remain worthy of preservation.

Re-discovering old ways living skills and learning to use natural materials to make what we need can bring us closer to our past, show the present in a unique perspective, and can shine a light on where we are headed in the future.

We might also evolve a deeper appreciation of the net which sustains us and some of its individual threads, increase our self confidence and find a great feeling of accomplishment.

Join us in keeping
these old ways alive.

This site is intended as an introduction to the world of ancient living skills.

A calendar of scheduled events and classes is updated through the year,
and the articles , links, and photos might set you on a path
to seeing the world around you in a different light.

We send out emails a couple times a year on schedule updates for
classes and events (mostly in California). If you would like to be on this list, email us

Please, contact us if you have any questions or comments.
