You can buy a boat, but you can't buy the unique feeling of cruising on the water with your self-built boat and completing it with the first scratch.
With our workshops we want to support you to achieve that dream of your own boat.
The construction of a canoe or kayak is an extensive project with many interesting and diverse steps, but of course also diligence. Both the strip construction method and the skin-on-frame construction method combine traditional and modern boat building techniques. No matter which construction method you choose, your first canoe building project will take you to a new level of craftsmanship.
What do you take with you?
When building boats you enter a world without right angles, which often forces you to improvise and build your own tools. But this is exactly what makes canoe building so exciting.Depending on the construction method, you will learn techniques such as steam bending wood, making traditional wooden joints, covering a hull with nylon fabric or working with fiberglass fabric and epoxy resin. In the end, you'll be rewarded with a boat of your own design, with which you can explore waters as you wish - we already have a few recommendations for you!
