The use of bow and arrow is one of the oldest forms of mechanical engineering and was used by many different tribes and cultures. The oldest bow found is estimated to come from 17,500 BC. It is one of the most versatile skills: woodworking is involved and the tensioning of animal tendons. It’s a very precise job.
Of course, we start with basic theory in the Bow building course. We learn to handle the required knives and axes in a safe and responsible way until we are capable to actually work with wood and the necessary tools. We start with the natural basic materials, which we will process ourselves with traditional tools into a real bow.
