Primitives Gathering

Mid Aug - Cedar Lake Outdoor Center

Great Lakes Primitives Gathering invites you to participate in this unique learning experience where teachers and practitioners of primitive life skills gather to share knowledge of our ancestor's art forms and survival technologies!  Classes and workshops are offered to share and preserve regional traditions and culture.

This is an opportunity to learn ancient art forms and survival skills that will promote and protect the local environment and preserve our natural resources. You are invited to join an educational experience in a relaxing environment with an affordable opportunity for everyone to enjoy.  We look forward to building the same temporary community and enjoying a laid back event in the tradition of the Great Lakes Primitives Gathering.   Prior experience or skill levels are not necessary to join these activities. Evening campfires will be a time to relax, share some stories, talent and get together with new friends and renew old friendships.  This is also a great learning opportunity for children.

A variety of classes and workshops will be offered:

Environmental and Preservation Program:      
Falconry and Birds of Prey,  Plant identification,  Edible Plants, "Fire" in the Wild,  Outdoor survival methods


Workshops and Classes:  

Making cordage with natural materials, knots and rope making, twine slippers, netting and uses for cordage, flint-knapping, wooden mallets ,  fiber and felting, basketry, bead and bone work, soap making, cheese making,  and history of hygiene and clothing!
