Whilst I’ve previously written about tinder bundles here, we decided to put together a short video showing how to make and use a tinder bundle showing some of the more important aspects such as construction, wind direction, posture and breathing. In the video I’ve used the inner bark of sweet chestnut but I could have used the inner bark from other species, some of which are described in this post, or even cleavers as I talked about in this video.
Take a look and let us know what you think.
We teach how to prepare and use tinder bundles on our 2 Day & 5 Day Bushcraft Courses, the IOL Bushcraft Competency Course and also our 2 Day & 5 Day Survival Courses. You can see plenty of photos from all of these courses on our Facebook page.
