Sample Itinerary

Day 1 Will cover materials sourcing and roughing out a bow stave , and time permitting basic tillering.

That night we bivvy overnight under tarp shelters. You will experience a night around your own campfire amongst friends and enthusiasts alike with the sights and sounds of the woods around you. This will be the opportunity to learn some mystical Bushcraft, including firelighting skills, cooking over an open fire, etc

Day 2 The following morning after a hearty breakfast we will continue with the course refining and tillering the bow, making the string and time allowing material sourcing and making basic arrows.

The course is aimed at the archery novice as the bows will generally be based on stone age / early medieval bows and equipment.*

The courses are conducted at a relaxed pace in a friendly atmosphere and will be tailored to the requirements of the group where ever possible.

No previous experience is needed and general bushcrafting and an appreciation of nature is included in the weekend.

*Note this is not a course for making yew war bows as there is not enough time for bows of that magnitude.
