http://www.RootsVT.com http://rootsvt.com/primitive-skills The Roots School Bow Building course occurs every winter in Central Vermont. This course brings the student from a seasoned stave to a finished, hunting weight long bow. Although mostly workshop, a series of several short lectures are given to expand on subjects such as: wood selection and harvesting, bow design and performance, tillering, and instinctive shooting. The class covers primitive bow building on a conceptual level as well as each step in the technical process from peeling back the bark to twisting your own strings. We will also discuss the bow in the context of survival skills. This class is a tremendous experience whether you are a hunter looking to hunt with your own handmade tackle or a lover of archery and its long history looking for a new bow to enjoy and shoot.
