Coracle Building at Inshriach

25th May - 27th May

Coracle Building at Inshriach
between Thursday 25th May and Sunday 27th May

As part of a new series of traditional skills and green woodworking courses taking place at Inshriach we are running a 3 day Spey coracle building course between Thursday 25th May and Sunday 27th May.

The course will be run by master coracle builder Peter Faulkner, basket maker Edmund Howan and Henry Fosbrooke of Milton Community Woodlands .

All the willow for the basket work, a pre cured hide for a cover, softwood to make the seat and blanks to make paddles are provided. You will need to find your own accommodation and food but camping can be made available at Inshriach and we can chip together for communal meals if we like.

The cost per coracle is £450 including all the materials (one would expect to pay at least £500 to buy a ready made coracle) and we reckon on making 6 coracles over the weekend so if you can find someone to share the work (and the coracle) the cost would be £225 per person. Once they are finished we can take to the spey to see if anyone can stay upright.

Please email or call 01540651341 for more details.
