The Apprenticeshop is offering an opportunity to join an intensive 12-week program for anyone interested in learning how to build a boat.

Between now and the end of December, participants can enroll in the boatbuilding skills program at half price, and they can start the program on a date that is most convenient for them.

The program at the Maine school is open to anyone 18 or older who has 12 weeks to devote to learning traditional wooden boatbuilding. No prior experience is needed.

During the special promotion, students can begin at their convenience — as long as the tuition is paid in full — until Dec. 31.

The special tuition rate is $3,000. Students who plan to keep the skiff they build are charged an additional $600 in materials.

For information about the program, e-mail or call (207) 594-1800.
