Traditional boatbuilders continue in Norway amid COVID-19 pandemic

Museet Kystens Arv

Our museum has a boat building yard with 2 boatbuilders and 2 apprentices. During the pandemic the boat building yard has been closed for the public but the boat builders has been to work every day. They have been keeping distance from each other. They all think it has gone pretty great.

When it comes to the rest of the community we have experienced a growth in DIY.

People are asking for something to do at their home like making a cup of wood, a spoon or how to make and use a wooden boat. Many people want to go back to nature so to speak.
