Build Your Own Canoe Paddle (Cancelled)
May 21, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$200
Note that this workshop has been cancelled – please check back often to see the next workshop and program opportunities!
Join local paddle maker and teacher, Jeff Bach, for a series of sessions to learn to build your own beautiful and functional bent-shaft paddle to take home and out on the water. Throughout this series, we will spend time laminating, gluing, sanding, applying fiberglass and epoxy and learning basic woodworking skills. Meeting over a series of days allows time for epoxy and glue to dry. Each participant will bring home a paddle as well as instructional materials.
