    There will also be paddle-making workshops at the Assembly this summer, both single blade (canoe) and double-blade (kayak), as well as a canoe pole-making workshop, led by none other than the same aforementioned Geoff Burke.

    On the heritage side, there will also be demos on how to make a traditional (softwood) paddle and one on how to make an emergency paddle.
