Paddle Making - 29th February and 1st March


In 2020 we are building a lot of canoes and kayaks, and so this year we are running a weekend course in carving your own wooden paddle. Over the weekend, participants will make either a Greenland style kayak paddle or a canoe paddle, all using hand tools. In either case, we’ll build the paddle to your own measurements - it should end up fitting you perfectly. Even if you don’t yet have a boat to go with it, this is a lovely way to learn woodworking skills and to get something really beautiful to keep.

If you would like to make oars for a specific boat, we can help to make sure they are the right size. We can also provide timber for participants to make a matching oar at home after the course.

The course takes place at GalGael in Glasgow. It is non residential but we do provide lunch both days. If you’d like us to provide timber for an extra oar please contact us at the time of booking.
