Cost: £195 each

This excellent 2 day course gives everyone the opportunity to make their own piece of floating recreation whether it is for fishing, exploring local backwaters or just relaxing on the water.

All the materials are provided and the student will gain enough traditional skills and knowledge to complete the project.

Normally after this course students take home a completed coracle that only needs a few coats of tar for waterproofing. The tar is also provided.

It is more than just a couple of good days out in the woods it gives an opportunity to get back to nature with fellow students and do something our ancestors were doing 10,000 years ago.
