PRIMITIVE ARCHERY - AN INTRODUCTION

$45

with Paul Harwath

Calendar Mar 8, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 8 weeks
We will cover the making of a traditional longbow bow from common woods, both with and without the use of power tools. The use of power tools makes the task quicker but also makes it easier to cause a flaw that can cause breakage. The class will go over how to choose a piece of wood and what you will need to put your bow to use, such as a bow string and arrows. This class is designed to help you discern whether traditional archery is for you. Advanced classes will be available in the future.

SIX FEET UNDER…OR NOT: YOUR END OF LIFE CHOICES

$6

with Charles Lakin

Calendar Apr 26, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week
If you think that this is a morbid class to be avoided at all cost, you're wrong. My purpose is to give you the information you need to make good decisions about what happens to your body after your death and to answer any questions you may have about those choices. You'll be surprised at how many choices you have. A recent attendee called the class "riveting". Come see for yourself; you'll even laugh sometimes. Take a look at www.lastthings.net to see what you'll learn.
