we remain committed to the preservation of traditional and contemporary marine skills.

Whether you are a skilled craftsman or new to working with your hands, we have classes that will fit your schedule and level of advancement. 

Youth Programs

Youth programs are a major part of our mission and commitment to community.

We are currently developing a variety of afterschool classes to take place on Monday and Wednesday afternoons.

Our two week Summer Youth Program is scheduled for the last week in July and first week in August.

If you would like to build your first boat, make a new set of oars, design a toolbox or even press your own skateboard, we have a class that's right for you.

Stay tuned to our events page for upcoming classes.
