coracle building

Build a Welsh style coracle using simple tools and techniques to suit all levels of experience and ability. The coracle has been around for thousands of years, evolving as a cheap, simple boat that anybody could make and use for all sorts of short river work, particularly fishing.

You will learn to select suitable willow and hazel rods, techniques for bending willow and hazel to shape, fixing and shaping the hull and tailoring the calico cover ready for painting. You will leave with a finished coracle ready for painting.
