Bow Building Classes

Would you like to make yourself a wooden Selfbow?  A Selfbow is a bow made from a single piece of wood.

The bow we create is based on the Meare Heath Bow,  an ancient wooden bow discovered in England.  The Meare Heath Bow was dated to about 2600 BC and remains an archaeological mystery.  Participants begin with a piece of sustainably sourced Nova Scotia white ash and create their own selfbow by carving and shaping the wood into a bow custom made for their draw length.  The resulting bow is practical,  simple,  useable and should provide archery fun for many years.

The fee of $170.00 plus tax includes all materials,  use of workbenches and tools,  written instructions and personal hands-on instruction.  Rodney also makes you a custom bowstring.  Class size is limited,  and participants can expect to complete their bow in three Saturdays or less.

Rodney Spencer is a lifelong traditional archer and experienced bowyer.  He is a Canadian Certified Level 1 Archery Coach and a Certified International Bowhunting Instructor.
