Coracle/Willow Workshops

Come and spend three days building your own coracle or curach, or even design your own skin boat. Skin boat shave been used by different cultures across the world for thousands of years. Here in Wales there is a different pattern for nearly every river.

 

Our next workshop starts on Friday 21st April 2017 and ends on Sunday April 23rd. Charges are:

£290 for 2 people making one coracle [£145 each] and £240 for one person making a coracle. Costs include all materials, hot 3 course lunch and snacks morning and afternoon, but not accommodation.

You will be working with willow grown on the farm and will be using traditional techniques to create your own skin boat with canvas cover and waterproof, ready to launch on one of your local waterways.

For partners booking together, alternative willow structures can be created during the weekend [cost £85 per day].  Please ring to discuss your needs.
