Do you want to learn about boatbuilding? If so, the Grimsay Boatshed is offering a free short course in hands-on boatbuilding and repair skills.
Open to anyone (male or female) over 16, through the course a small group will get stuck in to learn traditional woodworking skills by repairing an old Grimsay boat.
Ronald John MacLean, Craftsman and Manager for the Grimsay Boatshed, will teach the course.
All tools and materials will be provided. Requirements are to work hard, have good attendance, and provide own transport.
The schedule will be Saturday mornings (10am-12noon) and Tuesday evenings (7-9pm) from 18th March – 10th June.
For more information, telephone Ronald John on 01870 603 399 or 07775 848 508.
All are welcome to the first meeting on Saturday 18th March at 10am at the Boatshed (Kallin, Grimsay) to learn about the project, try out some tools and see if it is for you.
