Au' puk' wum
We were invited onto the traditional land of the Klahoose to Au' puk' wum (Forbes Bay) in Desolation Sound.
We brought 13 staves, thinking folks could have their pick - but we ended up using them all! A couple people left early, but we managed to get 8 bows done in 2 days. These folks worked harder on their bows then any other group we've had.
They made a good range of bows, from a 20lb. paddle bow to a 65lb. flatbow. We were fed, invited to morning dips in a beautiful river, and our little one made a friend (thanks Darien). We've never taught a workshop in such a beautiful setting and we've marked the calendar for next year, in the hopes that we are invited back.
