The workshop in detail

  • Discover obscure forms of woodworking with Thomas by creating your own wooden arrow while also learning the basics of historical archery!

    You will start by learning about the world of archery, which Thomas knows very well. He will show you how bows and arrows are made. 

    Then it's up to you! Thomas will give you an arrow shaft that has already been prepared, and it will be up to you to place the feathers on the arrow and personalize it with natural pigment. 

    Finally, the workshop will end with testing the arrow while learning the basics of how to shoot the bows that Thomas makes. Thomas will give you the right tips on how to handle the string brilliantly!

    Meet Thomas

    Bowyer Fletcher

    Outdoor fanatic, Thomas is an accomplished bowyer and fletcher!

    Thomas studied film making and worked for a while in the film industry. He manages to combine his current job with his passion of bow and arrow making. 

    He is thrilled to welcome you to share his experience in ancient crafts and skills by reconnecting archery with the adventurous side of our past.

    He launched his company and even a bow and arrow brand called Ravencraft. Thomas has over 12 years of experience in making historically authentic bows and arrows and traditional archery. What began as an interest in history and anthropology has grown into a passion for making historical bows and other implements. His bows and arrows are made with natural materials and according to traditional methods that were and still are used by various cultures worldwide. 

    In our modern culture, we usually think of archery as part of the sports world. However, the bow and arrow play an important role in history and are still used in some parts of the world as an important weapon for survival.

    Thanks to Thomas, you will travel back to an adventurous part of our past!

    Wij vonden deze ervaring goud waard! Zeker een aanrader om te doen. Wij willen ook zeker nog een keer terug komen om een boog te maken. Dank je wel Thomas en hopelijk tot ziens.

    Our arrow-making workshop with Thomas was great! We started with a tour of the building, which is a common creative space for different crafts. Thoma's lab is the best, with traditional woodworking tools and an amazing storage for his bows and arrows! He's super knowledgeable about traditional archery, and he will pass what he can to you while you're doing your arrow (using traditional paints and real goose fletchings) In the end you will try some bow shooting with different bows and your arrow (if you want) which was super fun too! In between he'll offer you coffee and very good company - would love to go again to build more things!
