About the Course

Make your own canoe paddle at the Sylva Wood Centre under the tutorship of master boatbuilder Colin Henwood.

During this two-day course, led by award-winning boat builder Colin Henwood, you will learn how to shape a single canoe paddle from ash using hand tools.

Make your own canoe paddle at the Sylva Wood Centre, working with ash – Britain's superior native hardwood.
