Coracle Making

: 28 Aug 2020 - 30 Aug 2020

: The Green Wood Centre, Coalbrookdale, TF8 7DR

The coracle has been around for thousands of years, evolving as a cheap, simple boat that anybody could make and use for all sorts of short river work, particularly fishing. 

 

You will learn:

  • to select suitable ash laths
  • techniques for bending laths to shape
  • nailing, clenching nails
  • fixing and tailoring the calico cover ready for painting.

You will leave with a finished coracle and paddle ready for the Coracle Regatta on the Bank Holiday Monday.
