Conference Events

Want to try your hand at making a stone tool? Already a “knapper” and want to meet other people with similar interests? Just want to see what making stone tools is all about?

Join Us for the Pre-Conference Knapping Session.

Friday 10-11:30am, Meet in the lobby of Flagg. 

This informal session/workshop is an opportunity for novice and experienced knappers to come together and break some rock. There will be equipment available to borrow at the session but we encourage anyone with their own supplies to bring them along. Not sure what you will need, some commonly used items include:  

Safety Goggles

Leather Gloves

Hammer stones

Antler Tines/Pressure flakers

Pants and closed-toe shoes

We have a supply of Texas Chert to experiment with but welcome samples and donations of other cherts or siliceous materials for the group to work with or observe.
