One on One Learning Can schedule time all year round
All full courses run 8 hours daily.
Classes are kept small to allow for more one-on-one teaching. I recommend that you sign up early due to these small class sizes, in order to secure your spot.
There will be some extra evening and weekend courses, workshops and lectures offered. If they run they will be posted on the school website, news letter and Facebook page.
Half or full day potential workshops being considered:
Sail care, washing and small repairs
Splicing rope, three strand and double braid
Forge and metal work
How to use Sketch up
Sharpening and Tool Making
Should you have strong interest in any of those programs, please let us know, so we can consider including those to the existing schedule or planning a separate workshop.
We also offer programs for Groups, Company team development or Family get-togethers, which can be developed and run outside the regular program schedule.
