Carve a Greenland-Style Kayak Paddle


Carve your own Greenland-style kayak paddle! Begin the workshop by determining what length of kayak paddle suits you best. Learn to use traditional hand tools in the Museum’s Preserving Skills Gallery with the help of a supportive, expert instructor, Russ Parker.*

Create your own custom carved and sanded paddle with learning new skills and making new friends. Go home with all varnishing supplies to see it complete. There is no experience necessary to take this workshop and carve yourself an heirloom paddle.

This workshop is the perfect gift if you know someone who kayaks!
