Welcome to ORCA


Canoe Building Workshops
We run Canadian canoe building workshops in the Lake District. The courses are designed for individuals or small groups, and are set over 4 days. You don't need a high level of wood working skill, as the stages are really simple to follow. We build the canoe using the stitch and glue method. Bring friends and family along to help out at no extra cost and make a holiday out of it. Upon completion, the canoe is yours to keep.
All 2014 canoe building workshop dates here.
