About the Course

New this year as an extension to our existing courses we are now proud to offer you the chance to come and make your very own Yew longbow.

Over the course of 3 days we will show you how to select a stave and how to determine where the bow sits within it. You will then start to craft your bow using traditional tools and techniques. We will cover maintaining the integrity of the sap layer and ring chasing as well as tillering and finishing your bow.

As with all our courses lunch is included on all three days and instruction is on a 1 to 2 basis at most. all tools and materials are included and you will go home with your very own bow that you have crafted from the finest alpine yew.
