Well, after the COVID enforced break we have finally restarted the longbow making course, finishing the first course just 3 weeks ago.

It seems that everyone was gasping for a bit of entertainment after the lockdowns and as a result we have been overwhelmed with requests for places.

We initially arranged the one course that sold out overnight in under 10 hours.
Within a couple of weeks we had arranged and filled 4 additional courses running through the back of 2021 and throughout 2022.

I am afraid that means we currently have no more course places left in 2021 or 2022, but have started up a waiting list in the event of any places coming free or to get the first notice of any additional courses we plan (likely to be in 2023 now though).

If you want to join the waiting list and get early notice of the next course opportunities then please drop an e-mail to andrew.spondon58@talktalk.net and I will add you to the course contact list.

Through 2021/2022 the course cost is £175 for which you get:

  • 2 full days of entertainment making your bow and leaning the techniques
  • you will leave with a finished bow and string you have made yourself
  • the bows are 3 laminate, bamboo backed with a tapered core
