Nowhere Archery

Welcome to Nowhere Archery.  Tour the site for some perspective regarding our approach to the art, then see the calendar for upcoming courses.  If you’re new to the art, you can be confident that we’ll have a bow strung for you.  Spring arrows have a cast all their own, and to be in the emerald greens of the Shire this time of year is lovely––come see for yourself.  Our June Beginner’s Course is a 2 Sunday affair––the 17th and the 24th. Also this month we’re hosting an archer’s overnight on Friday the 29th––a parent/child campout which goes far beyond the range; there’s even a nourishing stew on the menu. Email, or give us a call for details and a camping gear list.  On Saturday May 26th, we’ll host a 2-hour Advanced Archery Clinic to engage the dynamic between grip and draw, heart and breath and suchlike thresholds; it should appeal to both body and muse.  Please note our Calendar for temporal orientations.

Family and group courses are organized upon request, while private lessons can be arranged to suit both interest and experience.  Young, old or wherever you fall in the spectrum of age or ability, if you care to learn the art we’ll reserve a place on the range for you.

♦◊♦  As many of our archery students know, we teach in partnership with the land which is beloved to us; its a comprehensive and dynamic presence which informs our class time in surprising and profound ways.  The reality of this place, this circumstance, has moved Jonathan and me to offer our younger students (and soon our older ones) an immersive week of archery and exploration.  We’re calling it Camp Nowhere, a nexus of eyesight and insight, hand and heart, inspiration and art––a springboard into the Beloved Land.  Follow the link for a sketch of the camp week, and feel free to contact us for more information:  Camp Nowhere.

Jonathan and I hope to see you here very soon.

newscanWe’re looking forward to meeting new archers and advancing our project in a broader spectrum of options.  Our students can expect new adventures on range and off, with a planned field trip or two.  We invite you to share your own encounters with the art, and perhaps offer some ‘riddlespeak’ as a challenge to hone our Aim.  ‘The story unfolds between anchor point and mark.’
Endless gratitude extends to our young friends at Double Helix School, who’ve offered insightful time and their own beloved range to explore the wonders and mystique of archery––Rovers each and all! Rovers: A Tribute

If you’re just learning of us and would like to visit, we encourage it.  Contact us to arrange a time.  If you have any questions not addressed by our site, please do not hesitate to call or email; we’re always ready to field questions concerning our work here.

Yours,

Steven and Jonathan

  1. Ahhh, reality put to pen. I am blessed to have witnessed this amazing Spring with you all! I have truly enjoyed being your learner. Deep bow of gratitude to the Hunnicutt family for having so lovingly preserved the land and to you both for sharing your gifts and continuing the stewardship!

    My son just completed the beginners course I was very impressed with Steven and Jonathon’s method of teaching archery. If anyone is interested in getting started in archery this is the place to come.

    Steven and Jonathan are excellent teachers. Their attentive presence made this novice feel capable, and their patient lessons about centering, breathing, rhythm, tension and letting go felt simple and profound. I went itching to sink a sharp stick into a target, and left with a sense of peace and a heart full of life lessons. It’s a great feeling. A combination of zen and badass.

    If you’re anywhere near Athens, GA do yourself a favor and go… Nowhere is another place entirely.
