Primitive Blowgun Workshop


Doug Meyers

Main Skills Taught

Rivercane Blowgun and Darts

Event Date

September 29- October 1, 2023 Uwharrie NC


During this workshop, students will make their very own primitive blowgun using natural rivercane that will be hollowed out and straightened by hand. Students will also make several darts that will be fletched using different techniques and resources, including thistle, cotton, and feathers. This will allow students to understand dart-making and fletching techniques thoroughly and gives the student the ability to fletch darts with almost anything. In addition, students will make quivers to hold and carry their darts.

During the workshop, there will also be lectures on the historical use of the blowgun with replica examples to examine. The workshop will finish with shooting techniques and practice to enhance students’ ability to hit targets.

This workshop will take place in North Carolina near Uwharrie National Forest from September 29th-October 1st, 2023. It will have very limited space available.
