The Apprenticeshop launches new Facebook page
ROCKLAND, Maine – The Apprenticeshop, one of the oldest traditional boatbuilding schools in the nation, is pleased to announce the debut of its new Facebook page.
The Apprenticeshop plans to use its Facebook page to share information about its community boatbuilding programs, sailing instruction, internships, and its apprenticeships.
Begun in 1972 within the complex of The Maine Maritime Museum in Bath and founded by Lance Lee, the Shop was inspired by the philosophy of Kurt Hahn, who believed that education should encourage both thought and action, not one or the other, but both at once. Lee believed that practicing resourcefulness and learning through boatbuilding -- a medium that requires decisions, care, patience, forethought and time -- is as important as learning boatbuilding.
The shop moved to its present waterfront location in Rockland’s North End in 1999.
The new Facebook page can be found at www.facebook.com/TheApprenticeshop. The Facebook page is managed by Dream Local.
The Apprenticeshop also has redesigned its website at www.Apprenticeshop.org.
