About this event

Join Heritage Crafts in conversation with Gail McGarva, boat builder.

Gail McGarva is a builder of boats, teller of stories and keeper of memories. As a traditional wooden boatbuilder, Gail is passionate about preserving working boats in danger of extinction. Her specialism is the building of replicas or as she prefers to call them 'daughter-boats', breathing life into a new generation of these traditional craft. In 2014 Heritage Crafts successfully nominated Gail for the British Empire Medal for her services to clinker boatbuilding and heritage crafts, and in 2015 she was awarded the Lord Balfour Prize for exceptional achievement in craft.

The session will take place on Zoom and attendees must register in advance via Eventbrite. Attendees will also have the opportunity to submit questions in advance.
