Natural glue is very useful. So often the difference between working well and a poor performance of a tool is the quality of the adhesive. Although modern man has quite a selection of adhesives, epoxies, and glues, sometimes the primitive product works best.
We have found that when hafting a stone arrowhead to a shaft, we would prefer our Pine pitch adhesive over any stronger epoxy glue. The natural pitch adhesive, when properly constructed, can quickly be warmed just enough to adjust or replace a stone head that has broken. You can't do that with epoxy.
In this class we will learn how to develop and use several types of prehistoric adhesives and glues. These will include:
These natural glues were often used well into the 20th century with excellent results. A good adhesive makes all the difference in the performance of a hafted stone point, whether an arrowhead or knife.
This class will teach you where to find, and how to process, useful glues and adhesives from nature.
