Coracle Workshop Experience in The Shropshire Hills - 1 Day



Work together or as a personal project, learn skills and explore this fantastic traditional craft and paddle sport. You will be guided through the construction while you work to craft your coracle. After refining and testing it you will have the chance to test out your craft on the water. We know you’ll have so much fun throughout the day. With a the perfect mix of making and paddling there’s something for everyone. Come just for the experience or take the skills you have learnt and develop them further at home. The cost covers 1 coracle build for up to 4 people. This workshop is great for all ages and can be tailored to individual and group needs. For larger groups or to construct a coracle per person please make multiple bookings.

What's included in the price?

All your materials and tools for the day are provided. Please bring your own packed lunch. If you wish to test your coracle on water you will need to transport yourselves to the water. Dependent on weather and water levels this may vary but will be no more than 30 minutes away. It will be sheltered water on a canal or river. We will provide paddles and all safety equipment.

Where it all began … I first learnt to crochet as a child and spent hours and hours making, sewing, knitting and learning every new technique possible in art, craft and design. After a degree in Graphics and with 16 years experience teaching Textiles, Graphics, Art & Design and Design & Technology I strongly believe in developing my own practice to be the best tutor I can be. I am continually inspired by my students of all ages so it's definitely and 2 way street!
