We have rightly got a fantastic reputation for providing some of the best courses in the country. Our Bow Making is no exception over the last 15 years we have taught 100s of people to make traditional bows.

Last weekend was another opportunity to share our knowledge with some fantastic people.

As usual we restrict the numbers on our craft courses to 4-5 people maximum to endure they have the best learning experience possible.
