Build! Paddles! Qajaq!

If you are a kayaker, one of the most rewarding things you can experience is making your own kayaking tools!  Turn a straight-grained piece of wood into a beautiful Greenland paddle, one of the most elemental forms ever created by human beings.  We often say in class, "the Greenland paddle is like your new friend, or your best instructor. All along the path, from carving to paddling, it informs you. You just have to be open to it and listen”

If you are interested in having some guidance along that path, Turner and I are offering 2 paddle building workshops this winter.  Jan 18th & March 22nd.  follow this link for more information:

And If you are a bit more ambitious, and have a bit more time,  why not conjure up a Qajaq!  We have a 10 day course Skin on Frame kayak building workshop coming up fast. The starting date for that is Jan 30th.  If you want to read more about that click here.

If perhaps this is too soon but you think that perhaps later in the winter you’d be interested, drop us a line. And if you would prefer that we build one for you, that’s what we do! Be in touch with Turner or Cheri
