Learn the ins and outs of breaking rock in this exciting workshop! Assemble your own tool kit, learn some flintknapping lingo, and create a number of simple flaked obsidian tools. Through hands-on instruction and live demonstrations, this workshop will focus on the creation and recognition of expedient stone tools by the beginning flintknapper. Knapping safety will be emphasized for all students.*
