In 2020 we are building a lot of canoes and kayaks, and so this year we are running a weekend course in carving your own wooden paddle. Over the weekend, participants will make either a Greenland style kayak paddle or a canoe paddle, all using hand tools. In either case, we’ll build the paddle to your own measurements - it should end up fitting you perfectly.
Even if you don’t yet have a boat to go with it, this is a lovely way to learn woodworking skills and to get something really beautiful to keep.
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
All tools and safety equipment are provided as is material to practice and make a paddle for your own boat, or for your wall....
We also set you up with a tasty warming lunch and as many biscuits as you can eat.
