Flint knapping defined in this free how-to video.
Through scratching and grinding rocks, John Olsen has made many authentic replica artifacts. He majored in ceramics in college and began making primitive items with native clays. Later, he became interested in Anasazi pottery. Replicas he makes of Indian art and pottery are displayed by museums, while the originals go into the vault. John has replicas in museums and parks worldwide, even overseas. <p> Olsen now teaches native plants, pottery, flint knapping, primitive knife-making classes, sandal making, and duck decoy workshops. He teaches Indian ideas, Indian baskets, Indian yucca sandals, jewelry and Indian dwellings (shelter building), using mostly “primitive” skills.
