Summer will be here before we know it, and the Local Living Venture has teamed up with local canoe builder Will Sommerfield to learn hands-on the art and skill of building an ultra-light canoe for those warm days out on the water we all are waiting for!
DATES - all day (roughly 9-5) :
Sunday, May 14
Saturday, May 20
Sunday, May 21
only 2 spots left! (limit 6)
Students as young as 12 years old have helped build these vessels as part of local projects with the Nature Center at Robert Moses State Park, the Kiwanis, and the Adirondack Visitors Interpretive Center at Paul Smiths College.
Instructor Bill Sommerfield has been teaching since 1970, and has built many of these ultra-light, attractive canoes over the years. He has generously offered to donate his time to teach others, and to give the resulting ultra-light canoe to the Local Living Venture as a fundraising gift, to support our workshop creation efforts.
Registration is necessary as there is a limit on attendance for this hands-on workshop. Registered attendees will receive full details, including location and directions, by email.
For this unique learning experience, a $75 donation per person is requested for material costs, to cover overhead expenses and to benefit Local Living Venture non-profit workshop creation. Take advantage of this opportunity now, as only 6 slots are available, and you will not find another workshop like this for under $750 outside of our area!
Donations can be made by cash or check to "Local Living Venture" and mailed to:
