5 star rating, 5 reviewers.
This course is taught online as well as on a one to one basis at my workshop - if you have the tools or I can advise you on where to purchase the necessary tools. Tools provided at my workshop.
Sessions can be booked in 4 and 8 hour blocks but can then be broken down into bite sized two hour sessions.
This helps with dealing with specific issues, time to practice and a revisit in the next session before progressing.
While you can have whichever suits you best, this structure has proved the most successful so far.
Spend the day learning how to flint knapp like our ancestors during the Stone Age. On this course you will learn to shape a knife blade or arrowhead using the pressure flake method. The arrowheads are preformed so no need to learn how to percussion knapp. You will also learn how to attach the handle to the blade. Handles can be made from wood or antler.
What's included in the price?
