Who:  Robert Darr

What: Wooden Boat Building  

 180 Studios, Santa Rosa - directions below

When: Tuesday, February 19  7:00PM

Robert Darr has been teaching traditional wooden boatbuilding for over forty years.  In 1981, he founded and directed the Center for Wood Arts in Sausalito. Fifteen years later he established the Arques School of Traditional Boatbuilding, where he continues to serve as Executive Director and head instructor. For four decades, Darr has pioneered the use of local woods in boatbuilding and has offered a comprehensive approach to teaching the history of traditional wooden boatbuilding as an art as much as a woodcraft. The curriculum includes in-depth study of classical wooden boatbuilding, hand tool use, traditional boat design, the milling of local timber, bronze casting, and rigging.



Directions to : 180 Studios, Santa Rosa

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the meeting
