In conjunction with the Blundstone Shipwright's Village, we are offering a mix of multiple-day, full day and short workshops at the Blundstone Noisy Boatyard, before and during the festival long weekend. Participants have the opportunity to work closely with skilled craftspeople, using specialist hand tools and will produce unique maritime objects. Visitors to the boatyard will be able to enjoy the view as dreams are realised and projects come to life!
