Paddle Making Workshop:
March 1stMarch 8th (9:00 am-6:00pm) Price - $135 Deposit - $50 Come out and make your own one of a kind paddle! Choose you're on blade style, and paddle length to suit your paddling style. No experience necessary! This workshop is run by Bruce Smith, and is just outside of Guelph. * Bruce pre-carves the paddle blanks according to each person's information, taking off the "bulk" that so that the paddles can be carved in a 1 day workshop rather than 2. This leaves the finer, more precise and interesting carving, shaping and sanding for participants, teaching them the specific aspects of paddle carving. * The paddles are completely carved and usually also completely sanded within the time frame of the workshop. However, the finishing process of applying oil or an oil/varnish mix takes anywhere from 7-14 days afterwards, as the oil must soak in, coat by coat and excess wiped off. There's just no shortcut to this process! We give instructions for the finishing and Bruce is available for help along the way if needed. If you have any questions email Nate at: firstname.lastname@example.org
