  • Flint Scraper - You will gain a glimspe in to basic tanning as you produce and use a flint scraper
  • Tendons - This element of the course looks at how to separate the tendons and then ply them together using super strong tendon cordage
  • Bone - The bone will be scored and shaved using flint tools to produce either needles, awls, harpoons or fishing hooks
