FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Hudson River Maritime Museum’s Wooden Boat School Announces Winter Classes
KINGSTON, N.Y. – The Hudson River Maritime Museum’s Wooden Boat School has released its winter class lineup!
In August, the museum’s Wooden Boat School began holding classes on a limited scale after our COVID shutdown. The class sizes were kept small and students were able to learn with plenty of distance between them while following guidelines designed to keep everyone virus free.
Several of our popular classes will be returning and we have added several new offerings this winter. Returning classes include Build Your Own Adirondack Chair, Live Edge Table Build, Build Your Own Oval Shaker Boxes, Cigar Box Guitar, and our Foundations of Woodworking five-part series. Classes which are new to our lineup include two different classes on building different styles of tool boxes, pen turning, a basic bookshelf build and others.
We have also scheduled a Family Carolina Skiff Build where one lucky family or friend group can build a boat together in one weekend. We normally offer this class to two groups who build two boats at the same time. However, to ensure COVID safety protocols, we are only building one boat with one group this time. The class is open to one group of 2-4 students who are comfortable working together.
All the classes this winter are great for beginner woodworkers or anyone looking to improve their skills.
Fall classes sold out quickly, so we encourage anyone looking to purchase classes as a gift or for themselves to register early.
To learn more about the classes, register, or view the extra safety guidelines we will be following please visit www.hrmm.org/boat-school.html
