Stone Age Lamp
How did Stone Age people find their way in the dark, or in caves when they went to create their cave paintings? With Stone Age lamps of course. Small lamps, just like the real thing, will be made using clay. Plant oil and wicks are then added.
Using natural pigments each participant, with the inspiration of Stone Age cave art, paints their own Stone Age animal, like aurochs or cave bears.
Stone Age Amulet
A Stone Age pendant of wood, or some other natural material, will be made, then drilled and sanded. With the addition of a leather lace or some artificial sinew a necklace will be created.
Sharp as a Knife
Using a flint blade and Stone Age glue made from resin, wax, and tree bark, the participants construct a knife like those used in the Stone Age. The knife will even cut vegetables and bread.
Using flint tools, Stone Age motifs - such as wild horses or woolly rhinos - will be engraved on slate. The result is anything but run-of-the-mill.
Leather - the Stone Age Fabric
After an introduction to the functions of clothing, the participants use bone awls, bone needles, and artificial sinew to sew their own leather pouch.
On the Hunt
Using spear-throwers, the participants test their skills with Stone Age hunting weapons. This workshop depends on the weather. In the case of heavy rain, flint is used to engrave hunting scenes on slate.
