Craig Addis, Paddle making

Craig Addis

Craig Addis has been captivated by wooden boats since being dropped into the middle of a wood and canvas canoe wearing an orange canvas life jacket as a very small boy. During the week, Craig works as a mechanical engineer but since 2005, he spends his evenings and weekends teaching an introductory woodworking class, paddle-making, and skin-on-frame boat building at Hill Institute. Previously, Craig has also taught others the art of cedar strip canoe construction at Hill Institute, and at The WoodenBoat School in Brooklin, Maine.
