Dear Friends,

Welcome to our 2021 WoodenBoat School website celebrating our 41st anniversary.

True craftsmanship occurs when labor meets love. Here at WoodenBoat School, individuals of all skill levels work with their hands and minds, learn new talents, new ways of doing things, and can expect to have a great time in a truly inspiring environment. It is a place of imagination and creativity. WoodenBoat School is also about community – people of many ages, from all over – arriving each week to cultivate their creative spirit in our shops and/or on our waterfront. A friendly, first-class staff and faculty are eager to share their vast knowledge and experience with you. And we provide small-sized, intimate classes guaranteeing plenty of individual attention.

Our beautiful 64-acre saltwater campus in mid-coast Maine provides an environment unmatched in its ability to allow one to experience great boats, plenty of peace and quiet, comfortable accommodations and delicious, fresh food, and a wonderful camaraderie amongst other like-minded souls. It’s a perfect place to take a break from your busy life schedule.

We encourage you to take your time looking through all the information that is found throughout this website. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would like to register for any of our classes. You can reach us at 207-359-4651 or school@woodenboat.com.

One of our dedicated alumni put it this way: “WoodenBoat School is a prism through which the strength, wit, and wisdom of Maine are beautifully refracted, but you have to be willing to go and see for yourself. It’s a place where the warmth and generosity of community are genuine – like Maine.”

We look forward to hearing from you,
Rich Hilsinger
