Ash bow making
Popular with re-enactors, in just one day you will take home your hand made bow
Ash is a wonderful wood to work, it has both strength and flex but above all, the wood teaches you a huge amount about bow making! Our one day courses focus mostly on shaping and tillering to teach you the very heart of bow making. Using hand tools you will rough out the shape of the bow before you teach it to bend aiming to produce a “full compass” bow to your draw length.
Want something specific? Let us know in advance if you’d like a draw weight, a Medieval or a Viking style bow!
Craft your ash longbow in the comfort of the workshop based in Heybridge, Essex. You can use the mobile benches or the purpose built fixed benches as you work at your pace shaping your perfect longbow.
Create the perfect ash bow for you.
An amazing day making a longbow from scratch – starting with nothing but a piece of wood me and my 3 friends crated an incredible ash longbow under Adam’s guidance.
His help and guidance was spot on but came with chilled vibes and great chat.
Definitely a great day out and completely worth it if you’re thinking about getting into archery, history nerd or fantasy fan!
