Blowgun and Darts

Friday, April 8 – Sunday, April 10
9 AM – 5 PM Each Day

Explore the history of primitive blowguns as you learn how to make one of the oldest and most simply effective small-game hunting tools. Learn the art of blowgun and dart making from primitive skills expert, Doug Meyer, who quite literally wrote the book on Native American Blowguns. Although blowguns have likely been made and adapted by many societies globally, this workshop will focus on Native American-style blowguns that were widespread in the Southeastern United States.

Cost: $75 for members, $85 for non-members

Recommended for ages 16 years & up. 

Lunch will not be provided; however, an hour break will be given for participants to either leave for lunch or eat a packed lunch on-site.

All workshop participants are asked to bring the following:

  • Wear long pants 
  • Water bottle (a 1 liter mineral water bottle is fine), sunscreen and a hat!
  • Notebook and pencil
  • Insect repellent

Food will not be provided (an hour lunch break will be held from approximately 12-1PM).
Participants can bring their own food for lunch (fridge is available to store lunches) or leave during lunch break. There are a number of restaurants close by.
