We are so excited to announce the full 2018 line-up of Artisan Workshops here at the Canadian Canoe Museum! This is the largest selection of classes we’ve ever offered in one year, and thanks to our amazing workshop instructors it’s sure to be the best.

Some of the newest additions in 2018 are; Pyrography on a Paddle, Painting a Decorative Paddle, Canoe Trip Menu Planning 101 (where you’ll cook a whole meal and eat it at our dining hall picnic table), Carving a Canoe Pole, and Making a Beaded Puzzle Pouch (if you want to see a video that shows the opening of a puzzle pouch click here).

After a few years off, the Hudson’s Bay Blanket Coat Workshop and the Canoe Seat Caning Workshop will be returning.

Of course there’s always the Paddle Carving Workshop – our bestseller, and the Canoe Restoration and Winter Moccasin Workshops – which sell out every year too.

We love to see the sense of accomplishment on our participant’s faces when they’re trying out a leather bag they just made, showing off their finished moccasins to a friend, learning a new recipe, mastering a beading technique, or trying on their wet-felted scarf. Whether you’re looking for something fun to do with a friend, want to make a unique piece of gear, or simply want to test out a new hobby we have a workshop for you.
