Flintknapping is like any other thing: "complicated before it gets simple".
Though, learning it can easily be achieved.
Learning on your own is possible, but it is a long and sometimes disheartening process.
Observing a flintknapper at work would allow you ot progress, but nothing replaces the direct and driven experience.
No matter what your motivations are:
• Just for fun, DIY
• Curiosity or mystical quest of the ancients
• Passion or Prehistory studies
No matter what your level is:
• Neophyte knapper
• Beginner knapper
• Confirmed knapper
You will find matter to progress and will discover new techniques by participating in the flint knapping classes which we organize in Tamnies
or in Les Eyzies
, in Dordogne, FRANCE.
