Has anyone ever taken the Chesapeake Light Craft Boat Building Classes?


Recommended Posts

Kevin and I have had these classes in our sights for quite some time. Now since we will have the Oliver we are considering staying in a campground and taking one late next year. Has anyone had any experience taking any of their classes? Thanks Theresa

I have not, but one of my brothers has taken a canoe building class (among others) at the North House folk school in Grand Marais. He really enjoyed it.

These classes,  teaching traditional skills and crafts, in a small group setting, seem like an ideal camping experience.  My brother and I  have talked for years about taking a traditional Norwegian timber framing class.  Maybe someday...

My late brother and I built a fiberglass and wood strip canoe from a kit back in the early 70's after seeing Deliverance. We had a great time building it and it did fine on placid creeks and lakes but one trip down the Buffalo National River in NW Arkansas did it in. I don't even remember us bringing it home.
