In this multi-week workshop, you’ll learn the basics of marlinspike seamanship through making a ditty bag. Traditionally, the ditty bag was one of the first projects for an apprentice either in the sailmaker's trade or as a working seaman. These bags incorporate the primary skills needed to make and repair sails. You’ll get exposure to laying out, cutting and stitching canvas, making grommets, splicing, and more!
