Bob Berg’s Atlatl Workshops at Hotel Bad Eisenbach, 2012

Join Bob Berg this summer in Europe when he offers two Atlatl & Dart Workshops at The International Bogen-und Messermesse in Eisenbach, Germany. By the end of the workshop, you will have built your own atlatl, as well as three darts, and learned several primitive skills.

June 29th, 2012 (the day before the show)
July 2nd, 2012 (the day after)

The goal of the workshops are to have participants learn the interesting process of creating functional darts and also an atlatl. Bob’s approach to this subject is engaging and fun as well as useful for people who want to learn about atlatls.

You’ll develop several skills necessary to make and use atlatls:

  • Flintknapping
  • Heat straightening wood and bamboo dart shafts
  • Fletching
  • Cordage making
  • Usage of various natural glue

Bob’s teaching includes the development of good form using the atlatl which, with practice, will lead to accuracy.

Bob Berg has been conducting workshops of this kind for over 15 years and has had over 22 years of experience in the subject. Bob has used the atlatl to kill two dozen big game animals including wild boar and deer. He has developed and built atlatl launched harpoons with which he has harvested hundreds of fish. Bob is a full time atlatl maker and one of the modern leaders in the use of the atlatl. He has brought the atlatl to the world in many new dimensions inspiring a revival in the use of the atlatl.
