Event Description

TENTATIVE DATE & TIME. Full details and cost when  we confirm. (RSVP function will also be activated then.)

Understanding the basics of fuel-efficient, low-emission stove design.

Facilitator:  Nadi Fleschhut

In this workshop we will explore the basic concepts of fuel-efficient stove design by building a zero-cost wood burning portable camping stove made from recycled cans.  We will study the “rocket elbow” design of Dr. Larry Winiarski, and learn about the main principles that all rocket stoves employ to create the best circumstances for a high-efficiency wood burn that minimizes pollution and increases heat transfer.  I’ll also introduce the concept of the “hay-box” as a complementary tool to minimize energy use by allowing the food to ‘cook itself’.

You will go home from this workshop with your own little camp stove with which to impress your friends, and a good introduction to the concepts of fuel-efficiency.

Please bring work gloves (as we’ll be working with snips and tin cans), tin snips if you have them, a notebook, and your joy of learning :)

Part of Reskilling Weekend: Learning skills that used to be more commonly known and practiced.
