This unique, 'Red Letter Day' type experience, offers you the opportunity of making your own bow, which is then yours to keep.
Under the careful supervision of Bowmaker Will Lord, (who has been teaching the art of bow making for over 15 years),and Terry Gunsman a good friend with a broad range of skills in making bows, you'll be guided through the process over two splendid days.
Before you arrive you will advise us what materials you would like your bow made from and the poundage bow you are going to make so we can prepare your stave before you arrive. For Bow backs we have Hickory or Bamboo, In the middle you can have Purple Heart or Osage Orange and the belly will be Lemon Wood. You’ll learn how to tiller the limbs, fix buffalo horn / antler nocks to the ends, create a leather handle and even produce the linen or dacron bow string, to make your bow fully functional.
A fantastic gift for anyone wanting an introduction to archery or for those interested in practical history & bows.
Suitable for both complete novices and experienced bow makers, you’ll be sure to have a great time and unlike most experience gifts, you will leave with lasting memento, by way of your very own, hand crafted bow that is yours to keep and enjoy. The course includes lunch and refreshments on both days. All materials are also included within the vouchers price.
