Hi and welcome to our new-look website. We hope you find some great reads, ideas and inspiration

LEARN TO BUILD YOUR OWN KAYAK

Lightweight, beautiful and strong; skin-on-frame boatbuilding combines traditional construction with modern materials. Over a week, you’ll learn to hand-cut joints and steam-bend oak to form your kayak’s custom-fitted wooden frame; lashing and pegging it together without any nails or glue. Then you’ll sew, colour and coat the skin with a high-strength coating, before paddling away! Working from the historic Underfall Boatyard, you’ll be a chisel-throw away from the slipway and pumps that have powered Bristol’s floating harbour since the 1800s. It doesn’t matter if you’re an expert craftsperson or complete novice. Go along, make memories and learn new skills.
