Description

The project space in CastleCourt Shopping Centre is a showroom for the small boats produced so far in workshops with school children, women’s groups, Men’s Shed members, and the general public.

It is also a workshop space, and a place for presentations and talks.

Everyone is welcome whatever your age, skill level or interest! All workshops are free, and all materials are provided - just drop-in!

Boat Club

With: Peter

Every Tuesday, 11am - 1pm

Boat Club is a casual series of free workshops for toy boat building. It is aimed for people who have time in the morning, are keen on making and like to have some company whilst constructing.

The building of many small boats, apart from some big ones, is an easy way to claim access to the river Lagan in an event in August. You don’t need any technical expertise, and all materials are provided.

Make Sail 

With: Jane

Every Wednesday, 3pm - 5pm

All hands, make sail, ahoy! This open-to-all workshop does exactly what it says on the tin - come and design and decorate your own sail for display in our CastleCourt space, Here’s One I Made Earlier.

Whether you are making small sails for a little boat, or would like to contribute to a gigantic patchwork sail, they would love to sea you (get it?). Their massive, collaborative sail will be part of their event in August, where they'll set off 10,000 boats on the Lagan, accompanied by performances and processions.

If it Floats...

With: Davy

Every Friday, 10am - 12pm

Draw a boat, build a boat, name a boat. Get your thinking cap on (and captain's hat) and design some new wild and wonderful boats for the Lagan to be entered into their competition.

They're looking for your most adventurous designs - either drawings or physical boats - to be part of the 10,000 boat flotilla in early August.
