About the Course

A new course for 2020 - building open Canadian style canoes. Like our kayak courses, this is an all-inclusive week on the croft where we’ll be in the workshop all day building lightweight stitch and glue canoes in plywood and fibreglass. The boat - a Selway Fisher Peterborough - is a beauty of a boat, but light enough to easily move around by yourself.

As these make a great boat for two, we’re offering a two person booking for this week - come with your parent, partner, friend or colleague, and build a boat together for future adventuring. If you want to build the boat solo, that is fine too.

The course fee includes all accommodation and meals for the week as well as all materials for you to take your new canoe home with you. Be sure to bring your roof bars!

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

All accommodation and food is included.

Course fee is £1400 for single person, £1700 for two.
