Boat-Building with Dylan Gauthier

Boat-Building with Dylan Gauthier

Artist Dylan Gauthier invites the community to join him to construct a punt (a flat-bottomed river boat), which he will use for a series of excursions on the Brandywine and nearby waterways over the course of his year-long artist residency. Gauthier will lead his “crew” in reading boat plans and the basics of boatbuilding as the group assembles the custom-designed punt, scaled for two people. The boat will launch with a small celebratory ceremony at 5 pm.

The boat’s design was created by the artist with his boatbuilding and publishing collective Mare Liberum, which Gauthier co-founded in Brooklyn in 2007.

No prior boat building experience is required - just an avid curiosity and an interest in learning.
