Our focus is on making and repairing wood based gear for self-propelled recreation on land and water.
We value traditional building techniques as a heritage art and modern techniques for the improvements and benefits they offer.
All of our building activities can be done by people with no prior experience and you will learn many skills during your time in our shop.
No commercial product can give you the pride and satisfaction that comes from building your own beautiful, useful equipment and being able to say “I made it”.
We hope you will join us and discover the feeling for yourself.
