21st Annual Arts and Arms Making Workshop at Conner Prairie

Guests from all over the country enjoy a rare opportunity to work closely with some of the nation's best craftsmen in creating authentic, 19th-century crafts and trades. We offer 5 day classes, 2 ½ day classes and weekend classes as well on a variety of subjects. The class sizes are small, the facilities are well-equipped, and the classes can be taken whether you are a beginner or a pro.

New this year is an expansion of our popular horn working class with basic horn work; a 2 ½ day knifesmithing class; a weekend blacksmithing class; and a weekend class in flint knapping.
