Nine months, one course a month ending with a week long stone age living trip. Engage yourself in your landscape and material culture in a whole new way. Immerse yourself in a handmade life. Studying, making, and using the tools needed to meet your basic needs, not in a short term survival scenario, but in a long term relationship of living with the land.
I love stone tools, and what started with an obsession with making pretty arrows heads has turned into a life long journey to understand how to make and use effective tools that can be used to meet my wilderness living needs.
