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 surely a [nearly] global, ancient human skill, and humans have made bows out of wood, bamboo, horn, and other materials throughout the 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. Bundle bows can be made to be very strong and accurate! $25 includes all required tools, materials and tuition. We will not be making arrows. Single arrows available for purchase.
This program is part of our Sapling Skills Series. Our six-week Sapling Series is designed to provide an approachable, accessible introduction to many small-scale, place-based living skills for kids ages 7-14. We meet once a week on Friday afternoons for two hours at the Eastern Promenade in Portland and facilitate a rotating variety of outdoor activities. Feel free to come by for a single day if you just want to check it out.
