February 16-22, 2025 : Florence, Arizona

Winter Count is a primitive skills conference that has been taking place every February since 1995 in the stunning Sonoran desert of southern Arizona. Founded by Dave and Paula Wescott, it is one of the preeminent gatherings of its kind, a place where instructors and students spend one week together, sharing their knowledge of—and enthusiasm for—skills such as fire making, archery, basketry, hide tanning, pottery, flint knapping, and much more. Join us!
