The Wooden Boat Centre welcomes three students to the workshop for the next 8 weeks to build a Working Percy Sailing Dinghy.

Wendy and Paul join us from NSW and Jacob joins us all the way from Denmark!

The dinghy will be transported and worked on in the Shipwrights Village at the Wooden Boat Festival to showcase our courses and craft.

The dinghy will be built in none other than the one of the finest Tasmanian timbers, Huon Pine, sourced from the West Coast.
The course will be instructed by The Wooden Boat Centre’s, Mike Johnson and will be constructed using mostly traditional methods and hand tools.
