For over two million years our ancestors made and used bone tools like sewing needles, harpoons, and awls. Now you can explore the ancient art of making bone tools with Jeff Kalin, a consultant to museum curators and archaeologists, who has 25 years of experience in the analysis of ancient artifacts and as a producer of museum-quality reproductions. Mr. Kalin is a recognized expert in Clovis point replication and other stone tools. He has constructed prehistoric sets and props for filmmakers and his wood-fired replica pottery can be found in private and public collections. Proficient in crafting Native American art, Mr. Kalin also offers hands-on workshops, sharing his uncommon artistry with others. Join the Museum and Archeology Center for the unique opportunity to learn about and make bone tools from this renowned artist and educator.
