2019 Intro to Flint Knapping
We had a fun and enlightening day learning the ancient art of flint knapping. Think rocks are boring? Not anymore! Check out the pictures of students breaking rock with a purpose! Using obsidian and/or colored glass, each student practiced percussion and pressure flaking techniques to create a sharp, multi-purpose, bi-face tool. Huge thanks to our wonderful hosts at Puget Sound Knappers. WOW was extremely fortunate to be in the company of and learn from some of the best knappers in the region – maybe even the world!
Incredibly knowledgeable instructors. Loved the initial history, and the small group workshops. Thanks so much! – 2019 Flint Knapping participant
