A reminder to UK primitives. come and join us this coming weekend if you can.
April 6-9
near Henfield Sussex
Holmbush Archery Club
The UK Primitives are meeting again over Easter
As usual there is no set timetable but at some point over the weekend we hope to have a look at the following:
* Flint knapping * Nettle Cordage * Fire by Friction (Wayne is a sadist) * Bow making (we are talking about the possibility of making a panda bow in the morning and shooting it round the same day. You'll need a bundle of 6ft garden canes, duct tape or string for whipping and some thin nylon cord for a string) * Woodworking and carving * Arrow making * Atl-Atl making and shooting * Leather working * Hide preparation * Game preparation (if Rob or I can get our fingers out and pot a few long eared field rats.)
To help out Holmbush club funds there will be a small charge. We think the fairest is 5GBP for camping and 2.50GBP for day visitors.

Too bad I work my arse off AND have a lack of funds, otherwise I might have come from Sweden. Sounds like a wonderful time!

I have an aol account because I am so primitive I can't work out how to get a proper one!
Some rabbits would go down nice. I think someone is bringing some venison as well.
I'll try to take some good pics if I can then work out how to post them here, see first comment!

I think it would be a good idea to bring everything!
If you want to do it, bring all the stuff to do it with. If you want to talk about it or show it bring it. If you think someone may want to learn how to do it then bring the stuff to show it. If you have excess stuff you may want to trade then bring that long as well.
On other meets we sat around talking, brought up a new subject and someone would dive into their car get the stuff out and show how they did it etc. Some people bring a current project along that they want to work on, whether this is arrows or a bow or making cordage.
I can only come during the days as I am teenager sitting, which means I miss out on the best bit of beers around the campfire at night but I hope to make a simple bamboo bow and a string for it.
