10-day Canoe building course


Our Wooden Canoe Building Course is compacted in an intensive 10-day working period. If you want to learn to build a canoe in a condensed period because you don’t have the time to spread it out over several months, this is the solution for you.

If you come from abroad there are different options to spend the night. A very nice B&B is located close to our shop: 15inn . At ± 10 km there is a camping and some holiday parks: Zilvermeer,  Sunparks Resort De Kempen or Camping Keiheuvel

The workshop fee does not cover the acquisition of the canoe. After completion of the workshop the built canoe can be purchased with a 5% discount on the price when new. Check our webshop for the pricing of our canoes.
