This workshop will include the materials and supplies to build your own porch swing. This will be a one day workshop in which we will be cutting your wood, and assembling your porch swing to be ready for mounting hardware. This class takes place in the wood shop at the HRMM Wooden Boat School located at 86 Rondout Landing in Kingston's historic Rondout district. 

Joint Instruction - For an additional fee, students are welcomed to bring a second builder to the class. This is a great opportunity to learn and have fun together. Joint instruction must be accompanied with someone taking the full instruction and purchasing a kit.

The Wooden Boat School was founded by the Hudson River Maritime Museum in 2015 to preserve the maritime craft traditions of the Hudson Valley and to teach a hands-on interpretation of the living history of the Hudson River. The school offers diverse curriculum and opportunities which inspire skills in woodworking, boat building, and maritime craft. Also available are restoration services for wooden boats.
