Coracle/Willow Workshops

Sadly it seems we are unlikely to run any more workshops due to our willow artist no longer being available to lead the courses.

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.

£320 for 2 people making one coracle [£160 each] and £270 for one person making a coracle. Costs include all materials, hot 3 course lunch and snacks morning and afternoon, but not accommodation.

Sorry, the  September 2021 course is now full

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.

  • Enthusiasm
  • Healthy appetite
