1: Preparation and collection of materials
Collect dry firewood in different sizes, from thin twigs to larger pieces of wood.
Provide lighting materials such as firelighters, newspaper or dry leaves.
Place the fire bowl on a flat, non-flammable surface, away from flammable materials and sheltered from the wind.
2: Building the fire pit
Place a layer of lighting material on the bottom of the fire bowl. Use the 'wigwam' or 'teepee' model where you place the thin twigs or wood blocks upright against each other in the shape of a pyramid.
Place the firelighters or use newspaper to ignite the flammable material.
3: Lighting the fire and maintenance
Light the lighting material with a match or lighter. Make sure the fire is burning well before adding larger pieces of wood.
Gradually add larger pieces of wood as the fire grows and becomes stronger. Make sure there is enough space between the pieces of wood for air circulation.
Continue to monitor the fire and add more wood as necessary to keep it burning. Make sure the fire is completely extinguished before leaving the fire bowl unattended.
