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.
