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 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! The bow we will make is more of a toy than a weapon, but this skill could still help you survive in an emergency. Everyone will receive one pre-made arrow to use with their handmade bow.
