There are only three forms of physical exercises that give equal strength to the joints and blood vessels in our bodies: yoga, karadi sadhana and archery. I don’t know why people have given up the skill of archery in the present day. Sri T. Krishnamacharya
Thanks for a great weekend with the longbow making workshop. I appreciated the mix of longbow expertise with the more meditative elements and advice that could be applied to other areas of life. To paraphrase: Don’t get too hung up on the final product without enjoying the journey. You need to enjoy the journey. If you don’t enjoy the journey, you’re missing the point. It was a relaxing time and I’m proud of the work I completed. I would definitely recommend the longbow workshop to others. David
Just wanted to thank you again for such an awesome bow making weekend the other weekend. I’ve taken my bow out shooting since and I’m still so impressed with her. It’s an awesome feeling to know that I’m shooting with something I created myself and could make again too. Jessie
The longbow workshop in Trentham a couple of weeks ago was the best! My son and I enjoyed bonding time in the company of a friendly group of likeminded souls. Best of all, we made something together that we will cherish and look after for a lifetime…reminiscent of the toys and tools of my own childhood. A bonus is the time my son spends daily (!) honing his newly discovered archery skills 🙂 The longbow workshop was a beautiful and enduring experience for us both. Thanks Lars!
