Catching Rabbits and Starting Fires at The Royal Standard, Thursday 27th October
Are you worried about the future? Is our current political, economic and ecological meltdown getting to you? Do you get a strange feeling of dread each time you reach for a copy of the Metro on the floor of the bus?
If the answer to any of these questions is YES, don’t just sit there on twitter, feeling impotent and sad. Start preparing today!
On Thursday 27th October, A Future Manual will be holding a Rabbit Catching and Fire Starting workshop at The Royal Standard.
You’ll learn how to turn a computer cable into a rabbit snare*; then how to start a fire with nothing more than flint and steel. After the workshop, we’ll gather around the bonfire, eat jacket potatoes and beans, talk about why we’re doing this**, and feel just a little bit better about tomorrow.
Date: Thursday 27th October.
Place: The Royal Standard, Cains Brewery, Grafton Street, L8 5SD.
Time: Rabbit Catching from 3pm, Fire making from 6pm. Jacket potatoes from 7ish.
Cost: £Pay-what-you-can (EUROS GLADLY ACCEPTED)
A Future Manual is a DIY guide to surviving and thriving in the bitter, barren world we’re creating for our children. You can find more information here.
Hope to see you there.
* NOTE: NO ANIMALS WILL BE HURT IN THE MAKING OF THIS WORKSHOP. I’LL BE USING AN ELECTRONIC RABBIT THAT I GOT OFF AMAZON.
** I’M NOT EVEN SURE THIS FUTURE IS GOING TO HAPPEN, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE IT, DOESN’T IT? IT CERTAINLY DOES TO ME.
