Advanced Flintknapping with James Bowden

This workshop is for experienced flintknappers who are already able to make stone tools such as projectile points. This advanced session will focus on overcoming participants’ specific knapping challenges, and cover advanced topics such as biface thinning, setting up platforms, improving percussion flaking, details on heat treatment of materials, and less common knapping techniques. Each participant is required to bring examples of their work, especially pieces that illustrate their specific challenges. Registration also covers a materials fee for the purchase of high quality and unique stone samples.
