Bowmaking

BowmakingI’ve booked up to go on a bowmaking course in May and I’m really excited! What better way to combine my interests in archery, crafts and native spirituality?

The course is run by James Watson, who was taught native awareness and bushcraft skills by Tom Brown Jr. James returned to the UK to set up the Native Awareness School. I met him at last year’s Druid Camp, where he was leading workshops on friction firemaking and foxwalking.

The bowmaking course is an update on James’ previous course, with extra background information about different sorts of bows and construction techniques. I’ll no doubt be posting lots more about this in the run up to the course, and then again afterwards – hopefully with pictures of my very own bow!
