Flintknapping Workshop
Beginners Class - March 11, 2023
Advance Class - March 18, 2023
 4 pm - 6 pm

Learn how to make your own arrowheads from local stone—

an ancient skill mastered by Native Americans thousands

of years ago!

 

So, what is flintknapping?  

 

Flintknapping is the process of reducing large cores of raw stone in a controlled manner with special tools to produce sharp projectile points or tools. Natives of North America have produced the finest flint and jasper       projectiles and blades in the world. These pre-historic artists are the inspiration for modern day flintknappers.

 

Level I (Beginners Class):  Saturday March 11, 2023

 

 Now is your chance to learn the basics of this ancient and highly specialized process. Thirty-year flintknapping veteran Rich Poirier  will walk you through the step-by-step process of using percussion         

flaking techniques to make a biface or arrowhead from raw flint.

Level II:  Saturday, March 18, 2023 

 

After learning how to make a Biface in Level I, you are now ready to thin your Biface to a Razor sharp Preform shape. You’re ready to pressure flake the final stage which is Notching and Hafting your Arrowhead to a Shaft or Handle for a knife.
