Sammamish Weekly Knap-in
Jim Keffer and friends hosts a weekly knap-in at his shop in Sammamish, WA. The knap-in is every Friday from about 8:30 am until sometime in the afternoon. In the event that Jim is attending a PSK knap-in or is otherwise unavailable, either Max Grow, Jim Smith or Barry Bonnell will open the shop and host this weekly event.
Free rock is provided, loaner tools are available as are safety glasses and gloves. All instruction is free and there is almost always a couple of good knappers to help with teaching.
In addition to flintknapping, the group also ocassionally works on other project - making flintknapping tools, bows, arrows, etc.
Everyone is invited and if the weather is good we knap outside. The shop will accommodate 30 plus knappers and has a whole room air filter.
