Boat Building Academy and Furniture School

General presentation

The Boat Building Academy was founded in 1997 by naval commander Tim Gedge. He was a great sailor who realized there was a gap in the marine industry, which was lacking boating skills as well as, boat builders to fill all positions.

An old RAF lookout post, located in Monmouth Beach, Lyme Regis, is the home for a team of tutors and staff with the common passion for teaching the craft of building and making. The Academy has become a leading boat building school in the UK and the world, offering a range of course for those interested in learning the art of boat building and woodworking.

In 2009, the BBA developed a furniture making course program with the same philosophy as the boat building education, intensive and practical development of competencies. Today, the Boat Building Academy & Furniture School continues to train women and men from all walks of life with the common passion for building and making.

La Boat Building Academy a été fondée en 1997 par le commandant naval Tim Gedge. Ce grand marin s’est rendu compte qu’il y avait une lacune dans l’industrie maritime, qui manquait de compétences en matière de navigation et de constructeurs de bateaux pour combler tous les postes.

Un ancien poste de surveillance de la RAF, situé à Monmouth Beach, Lyme Regis, abrite une équipe de formateurs et d’employés animés par la même passion : enseigner l’art de la construction et de la fabrication. L’Académie est devenue une école de construction navale de premier plan au Royaume-Uni et dans le monde, offrant une gamme de cours pour ceux qui souhaitent apprendre l’art de la construction navale et du travail du bois.

En 2009, la BBA a développé un programme de cours de fabrication de meubles avec la même philosophie que l’enseignement de la construction navale, à savoir un développement intensif et pratique des compétences. Aujourd’hui, la Boat Building Academy & Furniture School continue de former des femmes et des hommes de tous horizons qui partagent la même passion pour la construction et la fabrication.

La Boat Building Academy fue fundada en 1997 por el comandante naval Tim Gedge. Era un gran navegante que se dio cuenta de que había un vacío en la industria naval, en la que faltaban conocimientos de navegación y constructores de barcos para cubrir todos los puestos.

Un antiguo puesto de vigilancia de la RAF, situado en Monmouth Beach, Lyme Regis, es el hogar de un equipo de tutores y personal con la pasión común de enseñar el oficio de construir y fabricar. La Academia se ha convertido en una de las principales escuelas de construcción naval del Reino Unido y del mundo, y ofrece una amplia gama de cursos para los interesados en aprender el arte de la construcción naval y el trabajo de la madera.

En 2009, la BBA desarrolló un programa de cursos de fabricación de muebles con la misma filosofía que la enseñanza de construcción de embarcaciones, desarrollo intensivo y práctico de competencias. En la actualidad, la Academia de Construcción de Embarcaciones y Escuela del Mueble sigue formando a mujeres y hombres de todas las profesiones y condiciones sociales con la pasión común de construir y fabricar.

La Boat Building Academy è stata fondata nel 1997 dal comandante della marina Tim Gedge. Era un grande velista che si rese conto che c’era una lacuna nell’industria nautica, la quale mancava di competenze nautiche e di costruttori di barche per coprire tutte le posizioni.

Una vecchia postazione di vedetta della RAF, situata a Monmouth Beach, Lyme Regis, è oggi la sede di un team di tutor e personale con una passione comune, quella di insegnare il mestiere di costruire e realizzare imbarcazioni. L’Accademia è diventata una scuola di costruzione di imbarcazioni leader nel Regno Unito e nel mondo, offrendo una gamma di corsi per chi è interessato ad apprendere l’arte della costruzione di imbarcazioni e della lavorazione del legno.

Nel 2009, la BBA ha sviluppato un programma di corsi per la produzione di mobili con la stessa filosofia della scuola di costruzione di barche, con uno sviluppo intensivo e pratico delle competenze. Oggi, la Boat Building Academy & Furniture School continua a formare donne e uomini di ogni estrazione sociale con la comune passione per la costruzione e la realizzazione.
