Come join us for the start of our new lecture series! On February 28th at 6pm, Douglas Brooks, a boatbuilder, writer, and researcher who specializes in the construction of traditional wooden boats, will be giving a public lecture. He will talk about his experiences apprenticing with some of the last Japanese boatbuilders to learn their traditional craft and he’ll have copies of his new book available for purchase. To see photos of his boats and learn more about his research, you can visit his website.
The lecture costs $10. You can buy tickets at the door or purchase them here on the website.
Us lucky apprentices will also get to participate in a demo the following day. More to come on that in a future post.
