Father-Son Atlatl Creations

  • Location: ISM Dickson Mounds Museum, Lewistown
  • Date: Saturday, June 07, 2014, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Dickson Mounds Museum is hosting a Father-Son atlatl making workshop on Saturday, June 7, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. Commonly known as spear throwers, the atlatls were an ancient tool used in hunting wild game. Participants will gain insight into the Museum’s collection and spend their afternoon searching for the necessary materials to use in their creation and take their time making their atlatl. Afterwards, participants will be able to try their new tool.

The fee is $8 for ISMS members and $15 for non-members. Participants must be 8 years old and up with an adult. Adult father-son duos are also welcome to attend the program. Registration is required with a deadline of June 2, 2014. Space is limited.

The Illinois State Museum - Dickson Mounds is located between Lewistown and Havana off Illinois Routes 78 and 97. The museum is open free to the public from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. every day.
