2018 Summer Program

Build a very stable flat water 12' Kudzu type kayak. Build it using a fuselage frame design. Learn to skin the kayak with synthetic fabric and apply a waterproof finish. A recreational kayak perfect for fishing, paddling or photography.

This is a two week course (9 days this year). It will continue the following week (June 2 - June 6) The second week's activities will depend on how fast the class moves in the first week. It is likely that we'll be finishing the skinning week 2 and then painting it. We will make a paddle as well. The Workshop will be closed on Wed, July 4th.
Please note, ages 12 and up only.

See http://www.kudzucraft.com/web/ for videos and demonstrations of this remarkable craft.

Please note that you will be charged the full materials fee upon registration. ($325 materials added to the member or nonmember charge.) Students will be required to bring a life vest for the final day's paddle in the river. They may not test their kayak without them.
