WoodenBoat School has been presenting “hands-on” classes for 36 years, and we’ve been fortunate to watch our program evolve into an experience that is both unique and special to so many of you: unique for its vast array of course offerings in boatbuilding, seamanship, and related crafts in which we honor the tradition, history, and craftsmanship of our maritime heritage; special because of the feeling of community that exists here each and every week throughout our entire season. Our staff, instructors, and students are people of many ages, of diverse backgrounds, from all over the world, all sharing a common interest in boats and boating.
You will have endless opportunities to learn new skills, new ways of doing things, and have a wonderful time in a truly inspiring environment. An outstanding faculty is eager to share their vast knowledge and experience. Students learn by doing using hands and minds together. You’ll be encouraged to ask questions, work hard and learn, challenge yourself, stay up late or wake up early, and be creative.
Our 64-acre saltwater campus located on the coast in Brooklin, Maine, is a place where land, sea, and a big beautiful sky come together and help provide each individual an easy place to relax and enjoy oneself. It’s a place where new friends easily become old friends. A friendly staff, good food, comfortable accommodations, plenty of peace and quiet, and a fleet of beautiful boats to use on our waterfront all make for a pretty remarkable education center.
