About the event

Learning to make obsidian knives with Alexander Hobiger
An exciting, educational day within the historic walls of the castle awaits you!

Course purpose: We will make 2 knives in this course. A knife with an obsidian blade and a copper age side knife with a blade insert made of flint and handle made of black poplar bark. 
Course-content: In my course you will learn how it is possible to make an obsidian knife by yourself within a few hours using certain printing techniques. During the first 2-3 hours you will practice on the window glass. With increasing self-confidence we will then switch to obsidian. Towards the end of the course we will shank the finished blade into a handle and fix it with birch pitch.
Minimum number of participants: 3 persons, maximum number of participants: 15 persons
Children: minimum age 10 years accompanied by an adult

For safety: please wear closed shoes and if possible take safety goggles with you.
Course fee: € 100 per participant (including materials and entrance to the castle)
During the breaks you can explore the castle or enjoy a fabulous meal at the castle innkeeper!
