Canoe building course
Stitch and glue


Build a stitch and glue canoe with canoe builder Bart Deseyn during this canoe building course. In consultation we decide on a schedule to build your stitch and glue canoe. That will take up approximately 35 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 has to be purchased at € 1440.
