Annual Gathering Of Makers 2016
25 . 09 . 16
Last weekend saw our fourth Annual Gathering of Makers, where we invited all the people who have shared a week with us in the workshop crafting their own surfboard back down to Cornwall to reconnect with our local section of the coastline, relive their experiences with us and fill their tummies with some wonderful food.
We love to start the weekend by gathering people together during the day on Saturday to get in the sea and despite the average swell running and strong northerly winds, we had a great turn out. A whole group of us; workshoppers, friends and families, headed down the coast to Gwithian to share a few waves in the intermittent sunshine, doing our best to catch some of the fun lumps that came through. It was a great few hours spent in the ocean and it is always such a pleasure to see a good selection of wooden surfcraft in the water together, with everybody cheering each other on. We were then all treated to a cup of tea and a delicious slice of flapjack, lovingly made by Tim’s wife Liz back in the car park, which meant for smiles all round.
