This is a course in basic fireworking materials, processes, and devices. This course is available to the public, not only to Fireworking.com subscribers, with the intent of getting a beginning fireworker off to a safe, fun, and successful start. Enjoy.
Fireworking 201 is available to subscribers, and builds on the basics of FW 101, introducing Black Powder making and testing, construction of a BP maroon, making stars, and using them in aerial fireworks mines, shells, and rocket headings, which are lifted on black-powder charcoal-tailed rocket motors.
