The Apprentice Program
Our core traditional boatbuilding program includes the 2-year Apprenticeship Program, an intensive experience designed to teach all aspects of traditional wooden boatbuilding and seamanship. Having the opportunity not only to build but also to sail traditional boats is a key component of our programs, and sets us apart from other marine trade focused programs.
12- Week Intensive
The 12-week Small Boatbuilding Program is a shorter course designed to give participants a basic understanding of traditional boatbuilding. The program is designed around the construction of a 12-foot Susan skiff.
Want to learn a new skill in a week? Develop an appreciation for a new craft over the course of a weekend workshop? The Apprenticeshop has a range of workshops and shorter programs to offer. These short programs include weekend maritime craft workshops where participants can build a pair of oars, craft a half-hull model, try their hand at bronze casting or the basics of brazing, or learn marlinspike seamanship and decorative knot work. Come spend a week and build a toboggan with us in the winter!
