Intro to Flintknapping
Saturday May 13th, 2017, 10am – 6pm
Flingknapping is the art of chipping stones into arrowheads and other stone tools. This class will focus on making arrowheads. Arrowheads are one of the most attractive stone tools. These days, flint-knapped arrowheads are more practical as earrings than they are for hunters who have access to steel. Still, there is something to be said about making the tools yourself. At our class we will learn to knapp or “pressure flake” functional arrowheads out of obsidian harvested from Glass Buttes, OR.
