What we'll do
In this workshop, we'll begin by looking at the evolution of hunting projectiles throughout history. Participants will make their own Dutch Arrow and then learn how to throw them, all within the context of doing this with groups of young people. All materials and equipment will be provided, but please bring £2 to cover the cost of your Dutch arrow. In this workshop you'll learn how to throw a Dutch arrow and then we'll have a go- don't worry if you have any shoulder injuries etc - this bit isn't mandatory!
