Ever wanted to learn how to make your own self yew English Longbow? Now you can with Jamie MacDonald of Ravenbeak Natureworks

This highly successful 4 day workshop is designed to teach you to make a bow up to 65lb from a Pacific Yew stave to the finished English Longbow. No previous bowmaking experience required. It includes everything you'll need to know even down to the nocks and making a string. Each day will start at 9am until 5pm and will be full of bowmaking.

Jamie MacDonald is a well known master bowyer who works only with Yew. He has kindly agreed to fly over from Canada to run these courses and will be shipping over some of the tightest grained staves you have ever seen.

You will be working very closely with the wood to create the bow of your dreams using only hand tools.

All tools and materials will be supplied and you’ll have tons of fun in the process!

Tea and coffee will be available but please bring your own lunch or we have a cafe within the centre.

Strictly first come, first served - we expect these places to fill quickly given the popularity of the 2016 course!

Once booked the workshop place is non-refundable.
