Event description

Description

On this partly theoretical course students learn to interpret designers’ boat drawings and tables of offsets to produce an accurate scaled down version of a full-size loft drawing. You will learn how to correct any minor design errors to ensure fair hull lines from which patterns and moulds could be taken.

Also available is a practical Lofting course which can be tailored to suit the student’s needs, the length of which is flexible depending on the complexity of the craft to be lofted. The Practical version of the course takes designers’ drawings and develops them directly on the loft floor. You will learn how to make softwood patterns from which to construct a new boat.Due to the flexible nature of a practical Lofting course please contact the us to discuss fees etc.

The course will be run by our joinery instructor David Sales and is classroom based.

Daily hours are: 8.00 am to 4.30 pm
