NEW! Kayak Building Classes In Maine

For the first time this year you can now participate in a Pygmy kayak building class in Maine. Classes will be offered in two locations but will be taught by the same experienced instructor, Bill Thomas.

Meet Bill Thomas: “A big part of my work centers around helping folks play.”

Whether that’s on the water as a kayak instructor or helping someone build a boat. Bill is an avid sea kayaker, registered Maine Guide and very experienced boat building instructor. He enjoys helping other folks learn to build them so much that he has begun offering classes at his own personal boat shop in South Berwick, Maine. Class sizes are small and intimate (2-3 boats) and everyone sits down together for a home cooked lunch each day (included in tuition). “I have yet to have someone in a class that I haven’t become friends with, ” says Bill. “Classes just seem to draw a good crew of folks.” Registration for classes in Bill’s shop are handled through Pygmy.

A long time instructor for the WoodenBoat School in Brooklin, Maine, Bill will also be teaching the Pygmy kayak building class at the esteemed WoodenBoat. Registration for this class is handled by the WoodenBoat school. For more information, click here.
