Have you ever wanted to have a bow that you can really have true ownership over?
Now Strike Archery is proud to offer this exciting course where, over two days and under full tuition, you craft your own longbow. Starting out with a blank tri-laminate stave you learn to shape the bow using traditional hand tools before tillering to learn what to look for in the bend as you work it to “full compass”.
You then go on to shape and fit the horn nocks before adding an arrow pass and making your own string. Our experienced bowyers guide you at every step and can cater for all abilities.
Lunch is included on both days as well as all the tea/coffee you can drink.

To an archer yew is the Rolls Royce of woods for bow-making, many will never own a yew bow but for those who do shooting a yew bow is one of life’s great pleasures.
At Now Strike Archery ltd, our bowyers have undergone many years of study and hand make every bow to our customer’s specification.
All of our yew bows are based on bows raised from the Mary Rose and can be tillered to 32 inches and to bend full compass. We love to offer our customers bespoke options so we love to include an original and authentic medieval coin inserted as an arrow-pass, making each bow completely unique. Other options can include buffalo or cow horn nocks, back or side nocked and a choice of different finishes. Each bow comes complete with string, string keep and bow bag.
All of our yew longbows are made to measure so you won’t get a generic off the shelf product. Please call us on 01245 248130 to discuss your needs.
