A three-day paddle making workshop gets started Friday at the Petersburg High School shop.
Jim Zeller and Doug Chilton from the One People Canoe Society are teaching the class to make canoe journey paddles. The non-profit organization helped with 12 similar workshops in nine Southeast communities last year. It’s being sponsored by the Canoe Society along with Haa Aani, Petersburg City Schools and the public library.
Angela Denning spoke with Alicia Armstrong, a Wrangell resident who belongs to the One People Canoe Society about the workshop.
The workshop is Friday, Saturday and Sunday and will be at the high school shop. The class is full but the library is taking names for a waiting list if there are any cancellations, at 772-3349. Other workshops are planned this year in Wrangell, Hoonah and Hydaburg.
