Start Date: 16 June 2018
End Date: 17 June 2019

Come and learn the fine and primal art of crafting a bow with the Wild Earth Project at Castell Henllys Iron Age Village, in Pembrokeshire

Learn how to make a flat/long hunting bow of around 20-25lbs. This is the crudest form of bow, which is the easiest and quickest to make. This skill would have vital for those who found themselves in dire circumstances on the battlefield! Johnny will give a full axe and draw knife safety lecture and explain how to use them properly, before you will start to work on your own piece of seasoned chestnut.

You will be then guided through all the processes of layering out the bow, shaping the profile and tillering. Under full instruction, you will slowly whittle away your own bow. By the end you should have a solid foundation of bow making from start to finish so you can go home and make more.
