Urban Paleo: Flintknapping for the City Dweller
Sat/Sun October 15/16 11am-2pm
at Maclean Park
Begin your journey to learn the very ancient art of making arrowheads without leaving the comfort of civilization. Students learn percussive reduction techniques with traditional tools (antler, stone, copper) and to source their own materials in an urban environment (ceramic, glass and/or directions to the gem store). Guidance and instruction from local knapper, David Gowman, aides the student in forming a quick grasp of concept followed by the necessary time in studio, smashing rocks and glass until progress is made. Previous experience an asset, but not required. Register early, class max of 4, includes a half hour break for lunch. Wear long pants and boots.

Explore various materials including city green waste clippings and English ivy. Twining, coiling and tension methods are some of the processes we will explore; participants leave with a small finished piece inspired to try more.
