Saturday 12th January Kent group bow and arrow day at Iden Green community hall.
Pete Rippingale was doing a bow and arrow making day.
We were split up into three groups making the bow, arrows and the string.
Harry and Phill were in the first arrow making session.
I was lucky to be inside (in the warm) on my shave horse bow making with Keith Leonard
The more hardy souls were outside - including Robin Etheridge.
Josie Leake was also making a bow along with the chap below.
Great to see new youngsters.
Harry later on – making his bow.
Amy was giving spoon tuition to another new member, as well as supporting the rest of the spooners.
Good to see Mike Church out and about – taking a break from his chestnut work.
Carole – as ever busy either recruiting baking or needle felt some lagamorphia!
There were some other activities going on - wool spinning, lacemaking, John Burbage was carving.
Pete filing the knocks in the end of a bow.
Phill was the first to finish everything – well no surprise really.
What a great day – plenty of new members, lots of different activities, nice warm workshop, good company. The Kent group in full swing!
My thanks to lots of them – it takes many hands to make this work.
Their next activity is an adze day at Benenden 10th February.
