Welcome to our 2017 course website. This season marks our 37th year of honoring the tradition and fine craftsmanship of wooden boats. Beginner through advanced students of all ages can take part in an inspiring array of one- and two-week classes that teach new skills and new ways of doing things, and challenge oneself to become a more confident woodworker, boatbuilder, designer, sailor, or artist.
Each week from early June to late September, the WoodenBoat School community is composed of a friendly, experienced staff; highly respected faculty; and eager, interested students, all on our beautiful 64-acre saltwater campus. We will provide you with outstanding teachers, “hands-on” instruction, good food and comfortable accommodations, plenty of peace and quiet, lots of like-minded souls from around the world, and a splendid collection of boats to enjoy on our waterfront. It’s an easy place to make new friends.
As you read through these course descriptions, we hope you see yourself participating for the very first time or returning once again to this very special place on the coast of Maine. When you do, you will experience the creative spirit that has made WoodenBoat School one of the leading learning centers in the world. If you have a question or would like to make a reservation, get in touch, and we’ll be glad to serve you well.
Hope you can join us!
