About the event
A rocket stove employs simple principal concepts to create an efficient wood-burning apparatus. Fuel is burned inside a combustion chamber containing an insulated vertical chimney. Rocket stove designs are most often used for portable stoves for cooking but the design is also used to make mass heaters for heating buildings.
Learn to make a tin can rocket stove! Using recycled materials to make something useful is resourceful. Excellent for camping; not too bulky or heavy - they will fit well into a backpack! We'll use 5 cans and some tin snips to create a lasting product that competes against and may even outstrip your industrial camp stoves. $20 includes all tools and materials.
This workshop will be held at my home on Sheridan Street in Portland. I have held many successful classes and workshops in my home. It’ll be great. I'll leave the Rewild Maine sign outside so you'll know which house it is. You shouldn't have any trouble finding a place to park. Give me a call if you get lost.
