Join experimental archaeologist, Zack Curcija, of Echoes from the Past School of Ancient Technology, to create an archaeologically inspired stone pendant. In this workshop, you will make your own piece of jewelry starting from a raw piece 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.

Class is limited to twelve (12). $65 members; $85 nonmembers. Please register for the wait list if the workshop is filled so we can schedule another workshop if there is sufficient interest.

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.
