Event Details

This event is perfect for anyone who has an interest in making and shooting their own ‘survival bow’ while testing their skills on our 40 acre field archery course set in semi-ancient woodland.

During the first half of the day you will be taught which species of tree make the best bows and how to select an appropriate piece of wood. Under supervision from bushcraft expert Joe Peartree you will use a variety of tools to form and shape your bow to your own dimensions. After lunch one of our archery instructors will guide you around our field archery course where you will have the chance to test your bow and your shooting skills across a range of targets all set in a natural woodland environment.

This course is suitable for ages 12 +. No previous archery experience is necessary. The majority of the course will be held outside so participants will need to wear appropriate clothing and due to the nature of the activity no open toed footwear is permitted. Refreshments will be provided but participants will need to bring a packed lunch.
