Under the instruction of our experienced bow maker each participant will make a long- or flatbow using traditional techniques. In the course you will be taught to prepare and expose the staves as well as to produce the bow string and arrows. The choice of material for the stave blanks ranges from solid ash, black locust, or hickory to osage orange as well as other types of wood on request. Working in small groups, each participant will be attended to individually. We will discuss questions about bow making and problems that might occur. We will close the course by testing the bow.
