“When a person reaches that time in their life when they possess a rich storehouse of experience and skills in a particular sphere, I believe they are almost duty-bound to pass on that knowledge for the benefit of future generations.” – Tony Grove

Master shipbuilder Tony Grove (see Dorothy Sails article above) will be spreading his wealth of knowledge to other promising woodworkers and shipwrights in his new school on Gabriola Island.

Designed for novices as well as advanced, courses will focus on woodworking skills and techniques for the marine environment with a few non-marine programs mixed in. All skills learned will be transferable to general woodworking.

He is now accepting students and course suggestions for next summer. Visit the school’s website at thegroveschool.ca.
