Event Description

Saturday, April 23 & 24, 2016 – 8 am to 4:30 pm each day

Over time, many types of building skills have been lost to modern manufacturing. A skill that is still used today, as it has been for generations, is bow building. If you have an interest in building your own bow made from one piece of wood, also known as a selfbow, with the help of an experienced instructor, this is your chance. The style of bow could also be called a longbow. Gene Winter has been building bows for many years and will be sharing his skill with workshop participants.The workshop will be held at Wickiup Hill Learning Center. Workshop cost is $220 per person which includes one stave. Additional staves may be purchased for an additional cost. Pre-registration by April 15 is required, as class size is limited. For more information or to pre-register, contact Chuck at 319-892-6485.
