The Nautical Arts Workshop, located at 51 Meadow Woods Road, Deep River, Connecticut launched their 2019 school year and is now offering a variety of weekend workshops. These hands-on workshops focus on projects inspired by our maritime heritage. Students use traditional hand tools and techniques to create their own individual project. All skill levels are welcome.
Classes are offered for half days or one or two days, depending on the project. Upcoming class projects include how to make an Adirondack Chairs, a Cape Cod Catboat half-hull model, a Nantucket Basket bracelet, a fishtail wine caddy, deck cleat wooden serving boards, whale cutting boards, and marine carving courses. There will also be a brief introduction about tools like drills, planers, saws, lathes for woodwork, and basic instructions on how to use them.
Students must be at least 18 years old (15-17 years old welcome, if accompanied by a parent). Prices range from $45 to $345. For more information call 860-767-7345, or visit our website at www.thenauticalartsworkshop.com
