Fairfield, PA
17320

717-642-5840 The ability to produce a functional arrow or spear allowed prehistoric man to extend his tooth and claw in a way that no other mammal could. This simple advantage made man the dominate predator on the earth, even though he was by far not the strongest or fastest. In this class we will cover the 13 steps needed to produce a functional hunting arrow from nature. We will start with a raw Viburnum shoot (also known as Arrowwood), and go through the steps needed to straighten, size, and shape a finished arrow. We will also learn to cut knocks, attach feathers, and haft a stone point. Guy Neal of Primal-Knowledge will conduct this workshop.

Pre-registration is required for this program.

Cost is $40.00 for members and $50.00 for non-members.
