Spend the day down by the Rondout Creek learning woodworking at the Hudson River Maritime Museum Wooden Boat School. During this introductory woodworking class, students will learn to carve a half hull model using basic carving tools and woodworking skills. This class is perfect for the beginner woodworker and instructor Wayne Ford will help you through every step of the process. Half hulls were originally used by boat builders to study and refine the hull form of a vessel prior to full size construction. In this class each student will carve one of their own based on the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater.
