Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park to offer Flint-Knapping Workshop
Saturday and Sunday, June 22 and 23
10 am – 4 pm each day
Don’t miss this popular class taught by Bob Estep and friends that provides the opportunity to learn how primitive and native cultures made survival tools. Using primitive techniques, stone such as flint, and billets of antler, you will practice the fine art of transforming flint into arrowheads, spear points, and similar sharpened objects used for hunting and defense.
The cost of the class is $110.00 for both days and includes 2 days of instruction, a flint knapping kit, and stone – all yours to keep! Flint-Knapping is open to Adults Only and will accept a maximum of 12 students. The registration deadline for this workshop is Monday, June 17 and you must pay in advance to hold your place. You may reserve your spot and get further information by calling Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park at 423-543-5808.
