Flint Knapping Workshop Series
Two Coyotes Wilderness School (TwoCoyotes.org) is offering a new adult and older teen program on flint knapping in October. This 3-day class in Newtown guides beginner and advanced students on techniques in stone tool production including bipolar percussion, block on block percussion, percussion flaking, pressure flaking and finish work.
Held at Sticks & Stones Farm in Newtown, this program is a window into the past as attendees learn how early humans discovered and created stone tools using a variety of techniques. The detailed instruction during the weekend of October 11 and 12 will be followed up by an October 26 class offering further guidance in this intricate process of stone tools crafting. The workshop, taking place from 10am to 4pm, is $225 per person with a $40 tool kit fee. A $100 deposit is due by September 26 (deposit is non-refundable within 2 weeks of program). Attendees are asked to bring thin leather gloves, lunch, water and clothing for the outdoors.
Location: Sticks & Stones Farm, 201 Huntingtown Rd, Newtown. To register, visit TwoCoyotes.org/Programs.
