Make Your Own Stone Knife

primitive bushcraft skills earthwork programs
Learn How to Make a Knife from Scratch!

Have you ever thought

“What if I lose my knife and I’m in a survival situation?”

This workshop is designed to teach you what to do and how to make a knife on the spot. During this class, you will learn

  • how to create a cutting edge thru percussion and flint knapping skills, and
  • how to shape the stone and create a handle and make a traditional glue with natural materials.

In addition, you will learn a skill called “hafting,” where you take your blade and set it in a handle and secure it.

So, are you ready to take your knife skills to the next level?

CAMPING

* Bring own tent & supplies–$25/solo person or $10/person for families

For Saturday night, you can set up your tent in our big field – an 8-acre field of mowed grass. It is a short walk from there up to the main lodge where you can use the kitchen and dining room. This is a season lodge, and therefore, the bathroom and shower facilities are not available after the cold weather sets in and water is shut off.


Register – Camping (Sat Night only)

Bouchard Lodge

The Lodge is a rustic multi-purpose camp building.

The kitchen has a commercial gas range, several refrigerators, 2 sinks (water is not available during the winter), and a microwave. It is fully equipped with pots, pans, utensils, plates, cups, etc.  We just ask that you clean up after yourselves and recycle into the appropriate containers.

The dining area is very flexible. We have folding tables and chairs that you can use as needed, a small nature library for reference, and a cabinet of board games. There is an old tv and a pile of videotapes that you are welcome to use.
