ORCA

CANOE BUILDING WORKSHOPS

IN THE LAKE DISTRICT - POOLEY BRIDGE

Welcome to Open River Canoe Adventures.....aka ORCA.  We are besotted canoe nuts, who run Canadian canoe building workshops from a submarine testing station, on the shores of Ullswater, a short walk from Pooley Bridge, in the AMAZING Lake District.

 

We have three species of Canadian Canoes for you to come and build. The LAKELANDER  the PROSPECTOR and our NEW.... ORCA PUP

The courses are super chilled, music playing, tea brewing, paint flying things of creation. You don't need any wood working skills, as the stages are really simple to follow. We build the canoes using our clamstring tourniquet method..(sounds complex.. It's not)

 

Come on your own, or 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.

Don't have time to build your canoe, we also build canoes for sale. 

Check out our shop to see what we currently have for sale or feel free to contact us if you wish to commission a build, You can choose either the Lakelander or Prospector in any size, colour or seat configuration you would like. Lead time about a week.

Price will depend on canoe options, size ect so don't delay call today!
