DESCRIPTION

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.
