About the Course

ooking for something different for the school holidays? How about building a boat as a family? We’re teaming up with Haund an ee, experts in creative youth work, to offer something new. Over the week, each family (ages 7-16) will build a boat of their own to take away.

We will be making the Echo Bay Dory Skiff – a 11’7” simple flat bottomed boat, the smaller sister of the Caravelle which we build on other weeks. The activity is designed to be approachable and accessible, so that everyone can get involved.

The price is all-inclusive for your family. We can be really flexible about how this works, so please get in touch and let us know what would work for your family. Flexible use of the workshop will allow us to accommodate differently sized family groups. The course fee includes all material costs, so you can take your boat home with you.

Fees: £450 per adult/ £150 per child + £500 materials per family

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

The fee includes all accommodation and food for the duration of the course. We also charge a fee for the boat materials so you can leave with a boat of your own to play with.

If you have a larger family who would like to stay on the croft for the week we can accommodate that for a small additional fee.
