Afternoons at the Boat Shop | Thursday, 09. July 2020

WHEN: Thursday and Friday from 1-4PM


July 9-10; July 23-24; July 30-31; August 6-7; August 13-14


These afternoon sessions introduce kids to the history of Lowell’s Boat Shop and the boatbuilding process as practiced for centuries by the Lowell family at the Shop. Projects and activities will incorporate a number of learning objectives – the proper way to use hand tools; identifying the properties of different wood species; form as it relates to function; and the skills of organization, numbers sense, mental math, and fractions. The best part is that all of this education is delivered through hands-on practice, with the goal of having fun!  No prior experience or woodworking skills required. This is a great opportunity to familiarize your child with woodworking and tool use. Session fee includes materials.


You can register for single workshop sessions, or get a $25 discount when you register for all six. Each day offers a different experience with something new to learn.


Recommended for ages 10 and up (there is some flexibility). Students are asked to wear close-toed shoes and bring a snack and a water bottle with them each day.


M = $95 per session**; $450 for all 5 ($25 discount)
