About the Course

A great introduction to using hand tools in a purposeful way. Learn to shape timber by hand, through the production of your own beautiful half model of a boat. Before ships were designed on paper and computers, ideas were often sculpted by hand in 3D as a half hull. We’ll be creating complex hull shapes with planes, spokeshaves, drawknives and chisels. Everyone will leave with a model of their own.

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.
