Make a Greenland Kayak Paddle
Saturday, March 2, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
 
The Greenland paddle has seen a dramatic increase in popularity in recent years with recreational paddlers due to their efficiency over long distances or in windy conditions. This Arctic paddles differ from the Euro-style paddle by incorporating a narrower and longer blade. The blade width is 3-1/2 inches or less and tapers to a shaft or "loom" whose length is about the width of the kayakers' shoulders. This shape reduces the stress on hands, elbows, and shoulders while giving smooth and controllable power to the kayaker. Using local softwoods, you will learn how to create edges of hardwood that can be laminated to add extra durability to the blade. You will shape your paddle using hand and power tools. Final sanding and oiling will be completed at home. All tools and materials provided.
Fee: $200.00
 
 
In 1991, Mark Reuten began working as a freelance industrial designer, professional artist and woodworker. He built his first wooden boat in 1993. Three years later he enrolled in the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding in Port Townsend, Washington. In 1999, Mark started Nomad Boatbuilding. Since then, he has worked on canvas canoe restoration, skin on frame building, construction of small planked boats of various types, larger boat repairs, and taught traditional boat building and woodworking skills. Mark also contributed to Building Skin on Frame Boats by Robert Morris, with one of his boats featured on the cover. Now based in Victoria, Mark has taught boat building courses privately through Camosun College and St. Michaels University School. Examples of his projects may be found at www.nomadboatbuilding.com.
