What to Expect
Our instructors take pride in an ethical and nonjudgmental approach. We accept people from all walks of life and career backgrounds. We have helped Native tribes, businessmen, doctors, and artists. When teaching, our priority is to help educate and build a community of individuals who enjoy wilderness living, primitive skills, and archaeology.
Making Pottery the Old Way
Hospitality, Humbleness, and Humor
It is our honor to have you (our client) join us on this journey of teaching primitive skills our ancestors used hundreds and thousands of years ago. Without you, our goal of helping with public education in primitive technologies and wilderness living skills simply is not possible. When our instructors teach and educate, we are humbled by the time and effort each craft requires. Although our classes are hands on and educational, we are never stern. We love to laugh and enjoy our time spent together as a group.
Primitive Lifeways understands not all new students have an extensive background in primitive technology. Therefore, we take time to work with clients that are struggling with a certain craft or task. We always explain each craft and the physics behind the technology. We also know other students are familiar with primitive skills and enjoy helping others out—this is absolutely encouraged and helps us in our team effort.
