“Build A Canoe”

Build A Canoe
  • Brian Jones
  • If you can tie your shoelaces (thread a plastic cable tie), ice a cake (spread some glue), and hold a cordless drill, then you can build this canoe.
  • Early Bird!
  • Adults: $396.00* , Under 18: $242.00*
    * Prices include GST

Stitch & Glue Canoe Building – Two campers can pay only one fee to work on one canoe.
The 4.2m long by 750mm wide canoe we are building can be carried by one adult, fits on a standard car roof rack, is easy to paddle, and is very stable. No sawing of plywood or special woodworking skills are required – if you can tie your shoelaces (thread a plastic cable tie), ice a cake (spread some glue), and hold a cordless drill, then you can build this canoe. The canoe makes an excellent parent/child project. Builder’s ages have ranged from 7 (with a parent) to over 70, and all have had their canoes ready for the water on the last day. If looked after, this canoe will provide years of boating fun for the whole family.
The canoe comes as a complete kit with all marine plywood parts cut out ready to assemble – no sawing needed. We drill 4mm holes in the edges of the sheets, glue pairs of panels together using a jig to hold them steady, and then sew them all together with plastic cable ties. When we have the shape correct we glue and fit the gunwales (strips of timber along the tops of the sides), glue the chines (joins) together with epoxy glue, then plane and sand everything smooth when the glue has cured. Sounds too easy? It is, although for a few days you will be kept very busy… but success is guaranteed!

This course is fantastic for beginners as well as those who have made Felt or done my course before. It is tactile, colourful, interesting, 2-Dimentional or 3-Dimentional and more! I have been making Felt for nearly 20 years, and have never been short of ideas. Felt is a fascinating medium to work with – everything from people’s homes to the shoes and clothes they wear, can and are made from Felt. Mankind produced Felt before we wove Cloth. It is a technique that defies technology, for it has hardly changed since it was first produced, whilst we were still Hunting and Gathering! It is a mesmerizing and alchemic process with end results that are always one of a kind. I invite you to join me!
