Amateur Calgary Knappers

Amateur Calgary Knappers (ACK) is a small group of knappers who are just beginners in the craft. We try and get together about once every one to two weeks to share some coffee, jokes, techniques, bandages, and to just have a good time while we break some rocks. We are also planning to go on some field trips to gather some flakable material (weather permitting). As well, we plan to do some other out door activites during the summer such as heat treatments and making and using (on inanimate objects) bows and arrows and atl atls. The main goal of ACK is to have fun while providing an arena to learn and share with other beginner knappers. For more info and member profiles check out ACKs Home on the Web.
