About the workshop:

Particiapants will recieve hands on training to make a canoe paddle of their choice. Starting with a paddle blank and using basic hand tools such as rasps and hand planes you will learn how to carve your own paddle. Class sizes are small so you'll recieve lots of one on one instruction. Due to time constraints some finishing may be required during your own. Be sure to bring a camera and take lots of pictures.


There are no prerequisites but an eagerness and readiness to have fun will help! Some experience with hand tools and power tools will help speed the process.

Workshop Length:

8 hours
