new boat build starts july 11!
Boat building workshops will resume later this year. Please check back for updates!
How long will it take to build my boat?
Our class provides 23 weeks for you to complete your build! We will be working along on a schedule that will allow you plenty of time to finish during that time. Builders who apply themselves over additional hours can finish their boats much sooner.
I've never worked with wood, or fiberglass, or anything like that before? Will that be a problem?
Not at all! We will help walk you through every step so that you can build your boat with confidence. You will also be working along other builders, learning together.
What kinds of tools will I need for this kind of project?
The Maker Space has all of the tools necessary to take on this task! There are a few personal tools and pieces of equipment that you will be asked to supply for yourself (including a personal dust mask/respirator). Additional supplies are few and are generally inexpensive. In our past builds, we have found that some builders enjoy acquiring some of the most-used hand tools for themselves. And, of course, if you have some tools of your own, you are welcome to bring them down to use on your build.
