Course Description

This hands-on class will explore the basic materials, techniques, and workflow behind manufacturing of an indigenous art product. The demonstration will use traditional materials and walk students through the process of design, sourcing, planning, and execution of their own product. Concepts covered will apply to a variety of indigenous arts, but flint knap (hand-hewn stone) blades will be the product developed during this event. Future events in this track may include: moccasins, custom hide tanning, or traditional leather bags.
