STRAWBERY BANKE MUSEUM

HANDS ON BOATS: Molds, patterns & frames for Piscataqua River Wherry AUG 13-17

Event Dates: 8/13/2017 - 8/17/2017

Location: Boatshop at Strawbery Banke


HANDS ON BOATS, the Boatshop’s new signature program, is designed for adults who are interested in wooden boats and who want to be part of constructing a new boat while learning-by-doing alongside a master boat builder. The 2017 HANDS ON BOATS participants will build a new Piscataqua River Wherry based on the lines off of an historic Piscataqua River Wherry, which is part of the Strawbery Banke Museum collection.

“Molds, Patterns and Frames for a NEW Piscataqua River Wherry," August 13-17, 9 am to 4 pm Lunch included in full day price.

Molds, patterns and frames serve as the skeleton of any new vessel.

Picking up where the lofting sessions left off, participants will work alongside Nate Piper, master boat builder to create the physical structure of the new Piscataqua River Wherry. Using the full scale drawing on the Boatshop floor, participants will create the molds, cut the patters and shape the frames of the boat.

Full Day: 9am-4pm, includes lunch, $130 museum members; $145 non-members*
Half Day: 9am-noon, $79.20 museum members; $88 non-members*

*Prices are per day. Discounts available when you sign up for multiple days in advance. Please contact us for discount codes prior to signing up.
