Each year during the last week of May, the CAA hosts a week-long flintknapping workshop with expert knapper Tim Dillard. Knappers, both experienced and novice, work one on one with Tim to learn and refine their skills.

Our knappers go on several chert collecting trips and learn the best places to find high-quality materials. We are delighted to have all our knappers join us this year and hope to see you in 2015!
