About the Course
In traditional boatbuilding, the half model was often the starting point for the design of a boat. Shaped out of a solid block by hand and eye, the hull would be created intuitively. For us it’s a great way to learn how to read boat plans and how to use hand tools to turn 2D into 3D. We will be working with drawknifes, block planes, spokeshaves and chisels to create the complex curves of the hull of a boat. Everyone will leave with a beautiful model boat of their very own.
In some cases we can accommodate you to make a model of your own boat. If you would like to discuss this, please get in touch before booking.
The workshop tales place in GalGael's amazing workshop on Fairley Street in Glasgow. There is good parking and it's easily accessible by subway or bus from around Glasgow.
