Demonstration Day

I'm doing a flintknapping demo at Devon House from 3-5pm today. I'll be working Ramah Chert again, so it should be fun. This is the last demonstration that I have on my calendar, so if you are curious about how people used stone and antler to create sharp tools out of rock, now's your chance. Its free!

  1. Hi Tim, thanks for the demo today and answering some of my random questions. I'll be looking out in Pouch Cove for some of that chert. Looking forward to one of your classes in the winter!

  2. I'm glad you stopped by Mark. Hopefully more people who are interested in flintknapping workshops will drop me a line over the coming weeks/months. Once I get a list with a few names on it, I can go ahead and book a location.
