Win a Fun, Floating Work of Art

Posted August 4, 2010 in PublicStudent

Five Kendall students took an innovative summer class in canoe making‚??and now one lucky person will be the winner of their recreation creation: a hand-crafted cedar strip canoe.

Mark Mulder, Supervisor of Shops at Kendall College of Art and Design, led students Leonard Barnes, Justin Kellner, Rachel Postema, Cole Reynolds and Tristan Sisbach in the design and creation of this recreational/touring canoe.

This wide, stable craft measures 16‚?? long x 36‚?Ě wide, and weighs 57 pounds. Trimmed in ash with lacewood decks, it has been carefully varnished to a high gloss. Ash seat frames caned with plastic caning material make for hours of comfortable canoeing and ease of maintenance. Perfect for a lake cruise or loaded up for a camping excursion!

This impressive, fully functional work of art is on display in the Kendall lobby.
