Kayak Building Class at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum

This fall, traditional kayak builder Brian Schulz will be teaching a one-week kayak building class at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum. Brian is a leader in the revival of Inuit kayak building and is an avid coastal sea kayaker. The skin on frame kayak building process is easy and fun; no wood-working skills are necessary. Each student will build his/her own custom kayak, fitted to your body and paddling desires. The finished kayak is a work of art, ultra light (30 lbs. or less), durable, and beautiful.

Class runs October 3 through October 9. Workdays average 9-10 hours. Tuition is $1200, all materials included. You leave with a kayak and a paddle.
