Re: Canoe Supervised Build 23rd - 25th September

The cost of the supervised build is £200 plus the cost of the kit.  Use of the workshop, tools and consumables is included in the cost as is the supervision by an experienced boat builder.  This does not include accommodation but there are many B&B places in the area as well as some campsites.

There are still places available.
