Fabricating a beautiful sail is a time-consuming process. In order to facilitate this,
we provided a homework assignment for the participant to complete prior to the workshop.
It consisted of making a frame to stretch the sail material over. The jig is shown below.

Some comments from previous workshop participants:

"I too want to thank David and Greg for a very informative workshop.  As always, I learned so much."

"Many thanks for your superb workshop. As with the others I have gone to, I learned a lot, and had a great time.  I really appreciate all the time the two of you put into the preparation and organization, and the tremendous quality of the instruction."

"It was a terrific workshop. David, you are an excellent teacher. Could not be improved upon..."

Our latest workshop, run by David Antscherl and Greg Herbert, will focus on the intricate
construction of an 18th century stern. We will provide a 1:36 scale laser-cut kit for you to
assemble ahead of the workshop. At the workshop you will learn how to make card
patterns, plan, cut and fit a set of lights (window frames) across the stern, understand the
geometry and construction of quarter galleries as well as interpret contemporary plans.

The cost of the workshop will be $290. This will include the cost of a laser-cut kit sent to
you in advance with an instructional guide. The workshop also includes a guide book. We
run our workshops at the Baltimore, MD on Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
and on Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Previous workshops have filled up fast, so we recommend you register today. Please
contact Dr. Greg Herbert at to guarantee your kit and workshop
place. Special hotel rates at the Marriott Courtyard in Hunt Valley, MD have been arranged.
