Tool use, ethical harvesting, bow making basics, string making, and shooting will all be covered and done first hand. Bow making and carving are a great way to learn patience, focus, and gain a sense of confidence in building something with your own two hands. Parents are welcome and encouraged to come help out and enjoy a weekend of woodworking.
