The best way to learn lofting is to do it.  Join GHB resident boatwright Tom Regan (a self-described lofting fanatic) in a three-evening workshop to learn about lofting tools, concepts, and techniques.  After three nights of lofting what seemed mysterious, complex, and intimidating will be seem logical and enjoyable.  The skills learned will be applicable to any boat design.

Workshop participants will work as a team to loft a small dinghy while working in the historic Eddon Boatyard woodstove warmed joiner shop.  You'll take home the workbook you used in the program and a new appreciation for boat design. You'll never look at boat plans the same way again!
