Ragnarr Inn Grai, Arts & Sciences Minister for the Canton of Wyndriche, will be offering a series of classes on how to construct an archery bow at Unity College in partnership with the Unity College Medieval Reenactment Club. The focus of the class will be a basic longbow from a stave. Ragnarr may also demonstrate a basic longbow from easily obtainable commercial lumber if time and materials are available.

Regarding the number of attendees: the more the merrier. We should have most of the materials covered. Depending on how many attend means that tools will need to be shared. There is no charge for the workshop. If you have any tools such as a draw spoke shave and rasp plane please bring them along.

Classes will be held on Tuesdays on November 3, 10 and 17 at 7:00 pm in room TLL 104. This building is attached to Koons Hall and is in the center of campus
