Arrowhead-making and Flintknapping Workshop

August 10 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s “Arrowhead-making and Flintknapping Workshop” with flintknapper Sam Greenleaf will be held on Saturday, August 10, 2024 from 9:00 a.m. to noon, at 2201 W. 44th Street, Tucson, AZ. There is a $35 requested donation to participate ($28 for Old Pueblo Archaeology Center and S’edav Va’aki Museum Foundation members; 50% off for persons who have taken this class previously), which supports Old Pueblo’s education programs about archaeology and traditional cultures.

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.

Registration and prepayment are due 10 days after reservation request or by 5 pm Thursday August 8, whichever is earlier: 520-798-1201 or info@oldpueblo.org.
