Bow Making Workshop

Create the perfect laminate bow for you with our 2 day Bow Making Workshop.



Laminate Longbow Making

Now Strike Archery is proud to offer this exciting course where, over two days and under full tuition, you craft your own longbow. Starting out with a blank tri-laminate stave you learn to shape the bow using traditional hand tools before tillering to learn what to look for in the bend as you work it to “full compass”.

You then go on to shape and fit the horn nocks before adding an arrow pass and making your own string.

Our experienced bowyers guide you at every step and can cater for all abilities.
