2017 Workshop Series
Build-your-own boat | Learn boatbuilding skills | Fun & Fulfillment
In all these workshops, students leave with their own boat already built and ready to finish and paint at home using the skills and knowledge gained during the workshop and the take-home instructions we provide. These are demanding but rewarding classes that are great for corporate teams, family groups, and friends. As few as two to as many as six can take the class. Locations, prices, and details vary so please read below and do not hesitate to email or call with questions. In some cases a "TBD" will indicate that information is forthcoming but that the class is scheduled and we're taking registration.
