From its beginnings in Bath in 1972, through Rockport, and now in Rockland, thousands of apprentices, interns, and volunteers have shared The Apprenticeshop experience. They have come to us from Canada, Italy, France, Norway, Germany, The Maritimes, England, Russia, Japan, Sweden, Mexico, Denmark, Columbia, Finland, Switzerland, and nearly every state in the U.S. As a result, we have an extensive network of alumni around the country and the world who are a deep and knowledgeable resource for current and future students.
Many Apprenticeshop graduates have gone on to work for themselves in their own boat building shops. Others have become craftspeople and educators for highly respected companies and organizations and researchers for traditional boat projects from the Azores to Sardinia to Russia. Many graduates have also worked on historic projects such as Sultana and Amistad.
We encourage graduates of the Shop programs to keep in touch or reconnect! We are working hard to keep our alumni records up-to-date, but can only do that with your cooperation. Our goal is to create a community resource for past, current and future students. Please note! No one’s information is ever released without permission.
We are always interested to hear what past students are up to—so please contact us and let us know where you are. Thanks!
