Ye Olde Shipwright’s Tools

Take a deep dive into the tool bag of a shipwright and see the variety of tools that have evolved over centuries of boatbuilding. This is a great opportunity to put your hands on tools, learn new skills, and get all your questions answered. We’ll be talking corking, measuring, gauging, planing, patterning, and so much more. Starting out with a broad lecture style introduction, we’ll then move into Q&A and finish with lots of hands-on opportunities!
