Arts and Arms Making Workshops

Stock Carving & Silver Wire Inlay

Explore the world of historic trades at Conner Prairie’s annual Arts and Arms Making Workshop as you work alongside some of the nation’s best craftsmen.

Master gunsmith John Schippers will help you learn the basics of two fundamental techniques of decorating longrifles, tomahawks and knives: relief carving and silver wire inlay. Utilizing practice pieces, you will learn how to design and execute decorative motifs, and make your own tools and keep them sharp. You’ll also pick up other tips and techniques from John that he has mastered over his 50 year career as a gunsmith. Tools and materials required. Please note, this class meets Saturday and Sunday, October 7-8 from 8 am-5 pm. By clicking on "purchase tickets" below, you are able to register once for both sessions.
