Bow Building Workshop at Wickiup Hill Learning Center 10260 Morris Hills Road Toddville, IA 52341
Over time, many types of building skills have been lost to
modern manufacturing. A skill that is still used today, as it has
been for generations, is bow building. If you have an interest
in building your own bow built from one piece of wood, also
known as a selfbow, with the help of an experienced instructor,
this is your chance. The style of bow is also called a longbow.
Gene Winter has been building bows for many years and
will be sharing his skill with workshop participants on Saturday,
August 26, and Sunday, August 27 from 8am – 4:30pm
The workshop will be held at Wickiup Hill Learning Center.
Workshop cost is $220 per person, which includes one
stave. Additional staves may be purchased for an additional
cost. Pre-registration by August 23 is required. Class size
is limited. For more information or to pre-register, contact
