Boat Making Workshop for Newcomers
Making Waves invites refugees and other errant bodies to build a motorboat! The intensive workshop offers hands-on experience in carpentry and boat building. Participants engage in all stages of the boat’s construction, from design to completion. We envision the boat as an exploratory vehicle for local and cultural engagement. Once it’s complete, we will explore the region’s abundant waterways and converse about the divergent paths that led us here.
