NoVa Monthly Flintknapping
Where: Riverbend Park 8700 Potomac Hills St, Great Falls, VA
*Note on Location: We meet at the pavilion at the end of the parking lot on the Left. If this space is rented out, we meet in front of the visitor center.
*Note on the timing of this event: This event has a drop-in timeframe, with no formal scheduled instruction. ~9am is usually when the first people get there, and it runs to at least 12 and sometimes 2 or 3pm. So don\'t worry about having to get there by 9. It can be 10, 11, or anything like that. Likewise, you can leave whenever you want to as well. If there is no one there, hang out for a bit, as it will only be cancelled if there is obviously bad weather going on.
Every 2nd Saturday is a Flintknapping event held by NoVa Paleo Arts. Learn the art of making tools from stone, such as arrow and spearheads. It\'s a lot of fun, the people there are great and will kindly share what they know with you.
About this group: Northern Virginia Paleo Arts is a group of friends who enjoy exploring the tools, technologies and arts of paleo cultures. While at present we are mostly a flintknapping oriented group, there are efforts underway surrounding cordage, pottery, bowmaking and atlatl use.
You\'ll find a vast array of knowledge amongst our members as our individual backgrounds are as diverse as our skill levels (complete beginners to the very skilled). All have an interest in the paleo arts and a desire to share that knowledge.
Visit their site for more details and resources for flintknapping learning and supplies: http:www.novapaleoarts.org
