For those of you close to the eastern Adirondacks, Caleb Davis (master canoeing instructor and paddle maker) is providing a guided paddle making class in April. These hand made straight shaft thin blade wood canoe paddles are exactly the correct ones to use for perfecting any canoe stroke. Or go Greenland if you prefer.
When: Sunday, Apr 15, 2018 - 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Where: The Adirondack Folk School , 51 Main Street Lake Luzerne , NY12846
Cost: Tuition $185. Member Tuition $165.
Come and create a traditionally-shaped cherry paddle using only hand tools. You can make a canoe or native double blade (modified Greenland) paddle. After some history and an explanation of the shapes, you will pick your blank and get started! The process will be demonstrated from beginning to end to ensure that you come away with a perfect paddle. This one-day class will give you a sense of accomplishment as you complete a paddle that will accompany you on the water.
