Ruth Maney Room
Duluth Depot

Many of you have heard us talking about the Faering Boat being built up on 1st Street and the boat rya that we wove up there on an antique loom. Well…. “Noatun Community Wooden Boat Works will give a presentation on the construction of “Skadi”—a traditional, Norwegian-style faering built by Duluth area community volunteers and launched May of 2018. They will discuss the summer and autumn of rowing and sailing the 18-foot vessel as well as research travels in Denmark and Norway (supported in-part by the American Scandinavian Foundation). The presentation will also detail Noatun’s collaboration with members of the Guild and Bruce Engebretsen in weaving a boat rya last winter.”
