Brilliant course and a great weekend taking a rough ash stage and carefully working it down with traditional tools into a beautiful longbow, then making the string (an art in itself) and trying the bow out in a beautiful natural setting.
Tony is a wise and feelingful guy managing this woodland with a wealth of knowledge of nature and traditional wood working. He guides you with his knowledge gently and to your own pace until you are the proud owner of a functional thing of beauty.

Excellent couple of days, good materials, good tools (everything provided) (do take a packed lunch though..... if you can pull yourself away from your bow long enough to eat it!). Guidance, history and help (if you need it) provided throughout. Everyone on the course successfully made a working longbow, many thanks Tony.

This course was excellent. I'm totally hooked on bow making. Tony was an excellent tutor with fantastic knowledge and ability. What I was really impressed with was how he gave excellent guidance but still never touched my bow, the work that I did on it was 100% my own which was very important to me.
I have been shooting my longbow all day today and its just perfect. Thankyou Tony!!!!

Tony’s knowledge covers not only the craft of bow making but also the history of the longbow through the centuries to the modern day which makes this is a great course to learn about the longbow as well as learning the skills needed to make one by traditional methods. During the weekend he also shares his knowledge about the natural world while relaxing around the campfire drinking unlimited tea and coffee. I can thoroughly recommend camping in the woods to make the most of the experience.

Always wanted to make a longbow and this course was great. Turning a lump of timber into a longbow was an enjoyable experience, Tony explains step by step the process very well and you also get to learn how to make a bow string. Highly recommend this course, thank you.

I was amazed at the tools it you had and liked learning how to use them. I liked all of your arrows. I liked filling up the kettle and keeping watch over the fire too!
It was my favourite birthday present. Thankyou Tony for teaching me how to make a longbow.

I booked on the course as a present for my son and we both really enjoyed it. It was hands on but also educational with lots to learn!
Really nice location, I enjoyed the woodland walk and hearing all of Tony's local wildlife knowledge.
My son has been practising with his bow and getting loads of compliments!
Thankyou.

This is an absolutely excellent course! In two days you learn everything from choosing wood right through to shooting your bow. And it really is 'your bow'. You learn how to use the correct tools on the right way. Tony is an excellent teacher, very knowledgeable and totally approachable.
If you have arrived at this site then you must have an interest already. This course IS for you.

Having just completed a 2-day experience with Tony I can thoroughly recommend it if you are interested in how to make a long bow. The course was quite an active one and you watch your piece of timber transform into a bow (ableit with a fair bit of hard graft).
Friendly and knowledgeable tutor, with all equipment supplied, it's rewarding to be able shoot an arrow with your bow if it all goes to plan.
Great experience.
