Tidewater Wooden Boat Workshop teaches Hampton Roads youth STEM and life skills through the building of wooden boats and other nautical activities.
TWBW is partnering with The Barry Robinson Center's Next Step to Success program as we continue to extend our reach to Hampton Roads' youth.
The program will reach up to 8 youths, ages 13-15. Students attended their first boatbuilding session at the Workshop on January 27th. They began their journey with us by building small wooden sailboats, a project that requires them to learn and utilize 20 different tools. Upon finishing this project, they will begin working on the full sized boats that we currently have under various stages of construction, learning even more tools and woodworking techniques as they go along.
Follow their journey in the photos below.
