Sparrow Hall Farm, Edlesborough, Buckinghamshire, LU6 2ES
A tradition going back to earliest times - making your own bow.
At Silver Arrow we will teach you how to craft a longbow that you will be able to shoot on the second day.
You will be provided with a square tri-laminate stave. Then you will mark it out, and begin shaping it. Over Saturday and Sunday morning you will gently shave and scrape away the wood, tiller the stave to the weight you want and shape the bow so that in the afternoon you should be able to shoot it.
Please complete the application form and submit it with payment - you can pay by cash, cheque or card. The price is £295.
Your place cannot be confirmed until full payment is received.
Date of next course:
5 and 6 April 2014
Anyone over the age of 18 can join in this course.
You don’t have to be an archer.
You don’t have to be a woodworker.
We provide all the tools and guidance to help you craft your bow.
If you do have your own woodworking tools then please bring them along if you wish.
Five great bows made on our March 2013 course - well done!
