Off to Calgary

Probably not carry-on...
I'm leaving this morning for Calgary to visit family and lead a flintknapping workshop this weekend.  There are still spaces available.

The workshop is this Sunday, February 27th at the University of Calgary.  There are two sessions running from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, one for first time knappers led by Jason Roe and a second one where I'll be working with folks with some knapping experience.  I'm going to bring along a bunch of the reproductions that I have on hand and some of the materials that go into assembling them.  I expect that a lot of the people in my group will be the same folks who were there last year (although new faces are more than welcome!), so I'll bring a few new things for people to try out.  I think it would be cool if we knapped and assembled our own drills in the morning and used them to work wood and ground slate in the afternoon.
