CBMM to host four-day Timber Framing Workshop

(ST MICHAELS, MD – August 14, 2017) The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum will host a four-day Timber Framing Workshop this fall, running from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, September 28, to Sunday, October 1.

In this workshop, participants will learn about the age-old building process of timber framing, help layout the building plan, and create all the needed mortise and tenons using hand tools.

Instructor Grigg Mullen got involved in timber framing in 1994 as a craftsman, engineer, rigger and event organizer. Since then, he has worked on numerous projects both in the U.S. and U.K. He joined the Timber Framers Guild in 1994, served three terms on the TFG board of directors, and is a founding and ongoing member of the Timber Framing Engineering Council. As a professor of civil engineering at Virginia Military Institute, Mullen has lead more than 30 volunteer community service projects with students and community volunteers.

This cost for this workshop is $275 for CBMM members and $325 for nonmembers. Space is limited, and registration required to bit.ly/CBMM_Timberframing17. To learn about other workshops and events at CBMM, visit cbmm.org.

Build your own kayak, paddle at CBMM in September

CBMM_seawolfkayaks2(ST MICHAELS, MD – July 21, 2016) The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is hosting a nine-day workshop to teach the basics of building a skin-on-frame kayak and Greenland paddle from Saturday, September 24, to Sunday, October 2, with all participants taking home the kayak and paddle they built with the help of skilled craftspeople. Participants will work under the direction of Kiliii Yuyan of Seawolf Kayaks, with the final day of the workshop including a group paddle along the Miles River.

“At just 28 pounds, these kayaks are extremely lightweight and durable,” said CBMM Boatyard Program Manager Jenn Kuhn. “The framing will be locally sourced Atlantic white cedar, with the skin a covering of ballistic nylon, originally used for military flak vests. The skins are coated in a special two-part polyurethane that is highly abrasion- and UV-resistant.”

CBMM_seawolfkayaks1Noted to reduce stress on hands, elbows, and shoulders without sacrificing control and power, the Greenland paddle is remarkable for its narrower and longer blade. Based on a thousand-year-old Inuit design, the paddle measures about the width of the kayaker’s shoulders, with a blade that is less than four inches wide that tapers to a shaft or “loom.”

Kiliii Yuyan is an indigenous (Nanai) photographer, adventurer & boatbuilder with a passion for all things wild. Building on the knowledge and skills taught to him by both Native and revivalist builders, Kiliii designs skin-on-frame kayaks for the modern paddler. He shares the art of skin-on-frame in workshops across the globe.

“Whether you’re an expert craftsman or a beginner,” commented Yuyan, “everyone leaves our workshops with a beautiful, durable boat and advanced woodworking techniques.”

Seattle-based Seawolf Kayak teaches skin-on-frame building courses throughout the world—from Addy, Wa. to Helsinki, Finland—with this being the first time the course is offered in St. Michaels, Md.

The program takes place in CBMM’s boatshop along St. Michaels’ harbor from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day and is $1,600 for each participant, which includes all instruction and materials needed for the skin-on-frame kayak and Greenland paddle each builder will take home. Participation is limited, with advanced registration at bit.ly/CBMMKayak. For more information, visit www.cbmm.org or www.seawolfkayak.com.

The pieces are then shaped and sanded to a fine finish and then mounted on a baseboard to form a wall display piece.

The workshop is taught by the skilled craftsmen of CBMM’s Model Guild, who enjoy sharing their knowledge and techniques with CBMM members, visitors, and students.
