Boat Building Workshop


May 20 - Sep 17, 2023

Workshops are designed to provide both a cultural and hands-on experience for visitors having any level of background in the building and use of traditional Newfoundland boats. Each session begins with a discussion of small boats in a Newfoundland fishing community, including fishing and transportation uses, boat builders and materials used. All workshops provide an overview of basic structure and construction techniques before focusing on one of the four elements of boat building.
