CBMM Oar Making

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) in St. Michaels is offering a weekend oar-making workshop this April 5 & 6, with class size limited and pre-registration needed. Participants will be able to handcraft their own set of oars, like these shown here, to use specific to their vessel or for decoration. To register or for more information, call 410-745-4980 or email [email protected]

Under the direction of CBMM Boatyard Program Manager Jenn Kuhn, participants will learn to handcraft their own set of oars, which can be made for a specific vessel, or used for decoration.

The program takes place in the museum’s boatshop from 10am to 4pm on both Saturday and Sunday and is $60 for CBMM members and $80 for non-members, plus the cost of materials (approximately $50, depending on oar dimensions).

When registering, participants should specify what type of vessel the oars are for so proper dimensions can be determined. White pine will be provided, unless another material is requested in advance. To register or for more information, contact Jenn Kuhn at 410-745-4980 or [email protected].
