    I'd love to do a traditional bow-making course. We do the Bushmoot every year but struggle to make time to do a course outside of that time frame. Happy to pay appropriate fee of course! 😎

    I always offer bow making courses during the moot. Either Bhutanese or mini bows. I did run a 2 day traditional bow making course one year as well. These are run on the course days.

    Bow making is not a quick process. Learning to shape and tiller a bow and make the string etc takes time. Therefore if I was to run one during the core days It would take you away from any of the other activities and I would be unavailable to help run other sessions for people wanting other skills.

    If if there was enough interest for another full 2/3 day course in bow making at the moot I could arrange it. I would want to keep it to no more than 6 people.
