Join experimental archaeologist, Zack Curcija, to create an archaeologically inspired stone pendant. In this workshop, you will make your own piece of jewelry starting from a raw piece of local argillite, a stone commonly used in Sinagua jewelry. With stone tools, you will transform the raw stone into a piece of jewelry following the methods of production outlined in the archaeological record.

Saturday, May 20, 10:00 am to 1:00 pm (including 30 minute lunch break) at the Center. Limited to six participants. $75 per person. The class will be held outdoors behind the Center. Participants should bring a lunch. The Center's kitchen refrigerator and microwave will be available to use.

Zack Curcija, holds a Master’s degree in Anthropology (Research Archaeology) from Northern Arizona University. He specializes in the prehistoric technology of the Southwest with an emphasis on ornament production.
