Explore the art of boatbuilding in this two-day, hands-on course. Begin with lofting, and move on to the setup, steam bending and different methods of creating the backbone of small boats. You’ll also learn planking methods, both carvel and lapstrake, and use of appropriate fasteners. After two days, students will have the knowledge, skill, and confidence to choose a design and style of boat to build on their own. The fee is $170 (Friends members: $153). Minimum age is 16.
