Come and join us in the workshop and build your very own wooden toy crossbow which you will get hours of fun from! 

We think this course is best for 8 to 16 year olds working together with a parent/guardian at all times.

You will make your crossbow from a set of components including the main body, headstock, trigger mechanism and bungee cord. Jonty will instruct you every step of the way as you learn how to expertly build and finish your very own awesome crossbow. 

We will attach sponge ends to the crossbow bolts to make them soft on impact and don’t worry mums and dads, they’re not powerful enough to cause any damage, just powerful enough to have fun with! 

You’ll also make a holder for the bolts and some small targets you can aim at as well. 

Once your crossbow is made and sanded to perfection, you can choose to leave the crossbow as natural wood or you can apply a wax finish to really give it some character and protection. 

Then, we’ll set up some targets in the workshop and let loose with all the crossbows at the same time - safely of course! 

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to sand things properly, how to mark—up wood and how to attach pieces together using wood glue. You’ll get to use a hand drill, hammers and files among other tools to really get into the workshop vibe! 

Come and make something awesome!
