Event description

Description

This class will be a beginning class on bow making. We will be making a hickory longbow. It will cover basic bow knowledge, tools, designs, tillering, string making and basic shooting instruction. We will also covering information about different types of backing and steam bending but will not be doing either during this class. Those will be physically done in more advanced bowmaking classes in the future.
This class will start on a saturday giving basic knowledge and starting techniques. You will then bring you wood home to work on during the rest of the week. I will be availible to help you with any specific problems during the week and we will have open hours availible if you would like to sit down and work under my watchful eye. Then on the following saturday we will finish with the final tillering and go shoot! 12 and under can watch and learn for free.

There will be 2 types of tickets options:
BOWYER: you will learn and make your own bow to bring home!

ADD ON: you will gain the knowledge to make your own bow and maybe able to help the bowyers complete a bow if you came with them. But you will not have your own bow at the end of the class.
Space and materials are very limited so RSVP quickly before we are full. Additional classes will be held during the summer.
