Paddle Making

Sunday, May 25, 2014

Come and create a traditionally-shaped cherry paddle using only hand tools. You can make a canoe or native double blade (modified Greenland) paddle. After some history and an explanation of the shapes, you will pick your blank and get started! The process will be demonstrated from beginning to end to ensure that you come away with a perfect paddle. This one-day class will give you a sense of accomplishment as you complete a paddle that will accompany you on the water. Blanks are provided as part of your materials fee.

This one-day class runs from 9 AM to 5 PM.
