Craig Addis
Current Classes: No Current Classes


Craig Addis has been captivated by wooden boats since being dropped into the middle of a wood and canvas canoe wearing an orange canvas life jacket as a very small boy. During the week, Craig works as a mechanical engineer but spends his weekends teaching the construction of paddles and small boats at Hill Institute. In addition to teaching others the art of cedar strip canoe construction at Hill Institute, Craig has also taught this subject at the WoodenBoat School in Brooklin, Maine. When not paddling canoes, building canoes, teaching canoe building or reading about canoes, Craig enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, cooking and making fine furniture.
