Boat Building in Venice - want to learn?

Jump to last reply

I'm going to Venice in November to learn how to build a boat. There's a course running:

http://veniceboatbuilding.wordpress.com/

That ticks all my boxes - I love Venice, I like doing things with wood, and I've messed about in boats a bit. The course presently has two registrations - me and another, and needs six people for it to run. So I am bowling it up here, to see if any others might be interested.

I'm a bit reluctant to blab on too much about the course, or where it is held, on La Certosa, about 20 minutes from the main part of Venice. But the hotel there - we had a drink in the bar there today - is modern, spotlessly clean, and Sabrina, the manager, has excellent English.

So I'm promoting this course shamelessly, because I want another four people to join the course and make it happen. I hope it won't be seen as advertising. There is no financial benefit for me in this, but great personal satisfaction.

Thanks
