Building an Arch - Workshop

Kind of Event
Organised by

In this introductory course, you can make your own natural wood bow in one day.

A blank made of ash and a hand-twisted string are prepared. Ax, rasp, knife and scraper are ready. Together with a maximum of 5 other participants, we work outside under the open sky on this day, without machines and workbenches, but only with the simplest hand tools. You don't need any previous knowledge, but you should have manual skills and perseverance.

The bow that we make is a hybrid shape that lies between the classic longbow and Indian flat bow and is particularly suitable for instinctive shooting. You determine your draw weight yourself. The final fine-tuning of the surface and oiling is done at home.
