The course you are most likely to pick is the 3 day Lakota building course. For £899 you can bring your friends or family, and I will help you build your canoe. The price includes three options of accommodation. We generally launch the canoe you have built on the third day of your course, and then you take it home with you.

If you prefer to extend your stay to a week, for £1000 you can bring your friends and family to build a Lakota . The same accommodation options are available. You will have a little longer to work on your canoe, so you may wish to varnish over the resin ( people on the 3 day course mainly varnish their canoes at home later).Please note, during school term time ( when I am generally less busy) I am currently offering  canoe building at £800.This price applies through Autumn Term 2013.

Add a further £100 if you wish to build a Lakota 17. ( Ie £1100 in total).

If you wish to make wooden paddles, these start at £30 for a softwood paddle, and up to £80 for a hardwood or laminated paddle.

Some people like the option to fit an electric outboard to their canoes. We build a simple detachable outboard mount for £30

We also undertake repair work on canoes and boats. I charge just £15 per hour plus materials ( or just £20 per hour if you want to work with me). Email me to discuss your repair, and I will see what we can do.

For just £10 your children can opt to make a small wooden canoe from the same wood as the main canoe. These are about the size of Play Mobil toys, and are a great favourite.

During the course you will be introduced to the Japanese Pullsaw. I sell these for £25 if you fall in love with their ease of use and the  incredibly smooth finish they leave
