Qajaq Building With Maligiaq Padilla

Book Your Place On This Very Special Workshop by Saturday, February 18th!

If you're serious about taking part in this extraordinary class taught by Maligiaq Padilla please get in touch with True North Boats immediately. They need a firm commitment from all participants absolutely no later than Saturday, February 18th

*Payment arrangements are a possibility

*Affordable lodging for out-of-town students available.

In this intensive workshop you'll make your own tailor-fitted, high performance Greenland sea qajaq based upon the measurements of your body. Maligiaq Padilla learned his building techniques from Inuit elders in his home village of Sisimiut, Greenland and enjoys sharing this knowledge with others.

Qajaqs built by Padilla are housed at the Greenland Sisimiut Museum, the Inuit Gallery of Vancouver, the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC, and the Kativik Cultural Center in Nome. He is the only person in history to win ten Greenland National Qajaq Championships.

This is an extremely rare opportunity to learn the ancient craft of Greenland qajaq building from one who has lived it fully. 

Class space is very limited, so we encourage you to contact True North Boats soon.
