Water Works – our first public boatbuilding workshops are now live!
Part of Northern Ireland Science Festival
25 February 2024
We’re excited to announce this series of drop-in workshops throughout February in collaboration with Northern Ireland Science Festival and 2 Royal Avenue. These are the first four public workshops (of 90!) as part of our 2024 project, Water Works, and we’re so excited to welcome you whatever your age or skill level.
With materials, boatbuilding tools and pop-up pools, we’re inviting you to construct your own vessels under the guidance of our artists and boating experts who will show you the ropes.
Everything that you might need will be provided, and we’re keeping the emphasis on recycled and biodegradable materials. We’ll also be (ahem) floating some discussion points around both the power and vulnerability of our water systems.
The workshops are drop-in, but we will cap numbers at 20 at any given time, to ensure the safety of all participants whilst using the boating pools. Stay tuned for more public workshop announcements to come.
