On this residential week long course you'll learn the fundamentals of boatbuilding as we work to build two rowing boats. Over the week, with a group of 6 people, we will build two lightweight plywood rowing boats from start to finish, before launching them to see how they work.
The boat is built with traditional techniques, so we’ll spend a lot of time with hand planes, getting our heads around bevels and changing angles. It's a great chance to learn woodworking skills as well as to gain an understanding of traditional and contemporary boatbuilding.
All accommodation and food is included - we are staying on the beautiful island of Iona in two shared rooms in the hostel. We also take a day off in the middle of the week to sail on the stunning Birthe Marie - an old wooden boat that sails locally
