Wooden Bow Making

Wooden Bow Making

Can only woodland elves and mountain men make their own bow? It turns out that through hard work and focus, you too can learn how to turn a stick into a bow in a weekend!

Join us and you will learn the ancient art of tillering, fundamentals of woodworking, using tools efficiently, and tapping into our capacity for listening to wood. By the end of the weekend you will have made your own wooden longbow with carved bow handles, as well as your own bowstrings!
