Bow Making Workshop

Friday, October 25, 2013 at 6:00pm

4H Acres 418 Lower Creek Road

If you have ever dreamed of building a traditional bow with your own hands, this is your chance. Experienced bowyers Justin Sutera and Sean Cornell will guide you through this ancient process from finding and harvesting the tree to staining, finishing, and shooting. The bow you create is yours for years of hunting or target shooting. The connection you create with the land and the knowledge you obtain is yours for a lifetime. Visit our weekend workshop page for more information.


When: October 25 - 27, 5:30-9pm Friday, 9am-6pm Saturday and Sunday
Where: 4H Acres
Who: This program is for adults
Cost: $150-$235 self-determined sliding scale


This workshop will be physically strenuous and the information complete. The information covered will include bow limb design, bow performance, wood types, storage and curing techniques, and much more.  Please bring a notebook and pencil. We also suggest leather work gloves, and most important an open positive mind.
