Get involved! Two-hour Workshop Sessions with Alan Thorne take place in the Purifier Building at the following times:

Tuesday to Friday each week: 09:45 to 11:45, 12:45 to 14:45 and 15:00 to 17:00. And then on Saturdays – we row!!

The Workshop Sessions are open to anyone aged 12 or above and no experience of carpentry or boat building is required.

If you would like to book in, please TEXT or WhatsApp Alan on 07865 091155 with the date and time slot that you prefer‬ (he may not be able to answer the phone if he’s up to his armpits in wood glue, so please don’t phone unless you really have to).

If you haven’t already done so, please click the link to download an Enrolment Form. Once completed and signed, it should be emailed to, or taken with you to the Purifier Building.
Please support us if you are able.

We are not charging a fee for Workshop Sessions but would very much welcome donations so that we can continue to build and row boats.
