Canoe building workshop
Wood strip


Learn to build your own wood strip canoe at Freeranger Canoe. In consultation we decide on a schedule to build your wooden canoe. Depending on the type of wood strip canoe you want to build that will take up between 80 and 100 hours. We can build an evening or day each week or group the construction in one or more multi-day periods.

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.
