Looking for a workshop that will rock your world? Flintknapping is a process used to shape stone tools using pressure, and requires the ability to control the way certain types of rocks break when they are struck. Spend a day exploring how stone tools such as spear points, arrowheads, knives and scrapers, were made. Along the way, sharpen your own skills and make your very own point during this interactive flintknapping workshop with primitive technologist and lithics expert Jeff Kalin. Learn percussion and pressure flaking techniques and turn a rock into a useful stone tool! Please note: Workshop is intended for participants ages 12 and up.
