Come and create your own willow leaf shaped, traditional cherry wood canoe paddle or make a native double kayak/sit in the bottom canoe paddle. After some history and an explanation of the shapes, you will pick your blank and get started using only hand tools to create your paddle! The process will be demonstrated from beginning to end to ensure that you come away with a perfect paddle. Two different sizes will be available for canoe paddles – standard (29″ shaft) and long (32″ shaft). Kayak paddles are one size fits all (54″ shaft). This one-day class will give you a sense of accomplishment as you complete a paddle that will accompany you on the water.
