Laminated canoe paddle workshop
May 25, 2024 |9:00 am - 5:00 pm€195
In this paddle workshop you will make your own canoe paddle from a variety of laminated woods for a traditional beavertail or ottertail blade. Pre-laminated shafts will be supplied for you to glue up the blades and grips to. A discussion of the various types of paddles and how to size a paddle to an individual will take place before we glue up your individual paddle. The rest of the day will be spent paring the wood down with hand tools to make a fine canoe paddle. It should be noted that you may not have time to finish your paddle. You will be provided with some varnish to take home to finish the paddle there.
