Description

A one day course to teach you the traditional way to make arrow. This one day course will teach you how to make your own medieval replica arrow 100% by hand. We start with learning how to hand plane the shaft before inserting cow horn for strength before cutting the nock. Our instructors will then teach you the secrets of hand fletching using traditional glue, shaping the feathers into fletchings and then whipping them to the shaft.
