A unique opportunity to experience the Historic Coast Guard Boathouse in Garibaldi, learn the Japanese art of fish printing known as “Gyotaku” and then enjoy the “Crave the Coast” event at the Port of Garibaldi on Saturday September 29th. The fish printing workshop is hosted by Duncan Berry – founder of Fishpeople Seafood and spaces are still available.
Be sure to check out the gallery of historic and recent images that tell the story of the Boathouse. Gyotaku dates back to the 1800’s when Japanese fishermen used this technique as a way for fishermen to record their catch, then it became an art form. The amazing workshop at Garibaldi’s Historic U.S. Coast Guard Boathouse is from 11am-1pm.
Perfect for the whole family, and also learn about the sustainable fisheries happening right out the windows of the boathouse.
