Coracle Making Course
Saturday 5th January 2013, 10:00 am - Lopwell Barn
The coracle is a very shallow, drafted boat with no keel, and therefore is perfect for rivers and estuaries that other boats would be grounded in. Coracles are different from most other watercraft due to their weight, construction and how they are paddled. Traditionally made from willow, ash or hazel and covered in a large animal hide, they are now often made from ash lath and calico which has been waterproofed with bitumen paint.
We will be working with Sean Hellman and The Zone at Lopwell Barn to build coracles over Spring which we which we will use to explore the wildlife in the waters through summer.
