About the event
Humans have been hunting with bows and arrows for, at least, 60,000 years - six times longer than we have been building cities. Archery is an ancient human skill, and humans have made bows out of wood, bamboo, horn, and other materials for at least 60,000 years.
Learn to make a bundle bow! The bundle bow is a useful, quick bow that can be made largely without the use of knives. All you need are a few sticks and some string to tie ‘em together. Bundle bows can be made to be very strong and accurate! We’ll cover arrow-making, in theory; everyone in the class will receive one factory-made arrow.
