School Boat Building Initiative

GalGael are working with young people from Smithycroft and St Mungo's Secondary Schools as part of an exciting new project to build a new kit form boat which will offer pupils a chance to get out on the water. The St Ayles skiff designed by Ian Oughtred was specifically developed for community boat building, also allows technical teachers to use the kit to fabricate a 22ft boat of marine plywood to involve pupils at all stages of construction. The project is funded by Sense over Sectarianism.

Personal Projects

Here are a couple of examples of recent personal projects made by our participants at the second phase of their twelve week project. George made this stunning chess table as well as cast the pieces, copies of the famous Lewis chessmen.
Patsy is looking forward to placing her work in her garden to admire when the better weather comes. Well done to both of you.
