Japanese Boatbuilding Workshop featured in Harvard University newspapers

The story of the Reischauer Institute's wintersession Japanese boatbuilding workshop has been shared in multiple news outlets around Harvard University, including The Harvard Gazette ("First Lesson in Japanese Boatbuilding: Don't Speak"), The Harvard Crimson ("More Tools, Less Books"), and the Harvard SEAS newsletter ("Branching Out Their Engineering Skills").

Accompanied by collections of photos taken during the workshop, each story details the lessons offered by professional boatbuilder Douglas Brooks and the experiences and reflections of his students.

The boatbuilding process, as well as the finished product, is currently on display until March 31 on the Japan Friends of Harvard Concourse in the CGIS South Building, 1730 Cambridge Street. The boat will be launched on the Charles River in April.
