Otter x Finisterre Handplane Workshop
06 . 04 . 14
Packing up the van and taking our workshop on the road is one of our great pleasures. Last Saturday the road wasn’t a very long one though, as we were running a “Build-Your-Own” handplane workshop just around the corner in St Agnes for a group of competition winners at the HQ of cold water surf company Finisterre. We’ve known the team at Finisterre for a few years now so it’s great to have an opportunity to work with them for a day. They had run a competition across their social media platforms and selected 6 winners to join us for a day spent designing and shaping their own bodysurfing handplanes. They set up their two, large, ex-Swedish army tents end-to-end outside their offices and store at Wheal Kitty and we filled them with trestle tables, old tea chests full of tools and a string of lights borrowed from the farm so that by 10am on Saturday morning we were ready to welcome our workshoppers.
