Arrowhead-making and Flintknapping Workshop
October 16, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
On Saturday, October 16, 2021 from 9:00 a.m. to noon, Old Pueblo Archaeology Center will sponsor the “Arrowhead-making and Flintknapping Workshop” with flintknapper Sam Greenleaf. There is a $35 requested donation ($28 for Old Pueblo Archaeology Center and Friends of Pueblo Grande Museum members; 50% off for persons who have taken this class previously). This workshop will be held at Old Pueblo Archaeology Center, 2201 W. 44th Street, Tucson.
Learn how to make arrowheads, spear points, and other flaked stone artifacts just like ancient peoples did. In this workshop, flintknapping expert Sam Greenleaf provides participants with hands-on experience and learning on how pre-European Contact people made and used projectile points and other tools created from obsidian and other stone. All materials and equipment are provided. The class is designed to help modern people understand how Native Americans made traditional crafts and is not intended to train students how to make artwork for sale. Limited to six registrants. All participants are asked to wear face masks and to practice physical distancing during the workshop to avoid spreading COVID-19 virus.
Donations are due 10 days after reservation request or by 5 p.m. Thursday October 14, whichever is earlier: 520-798-1201 or email@example.com.
