This 'Tools of the Trade' is inspired by contemporary Nautical Education at NMCI, the artefacts at the Maritime Museum in Passage West and the captivating historic views of Cork Harbour from the Statio Bene Exhibition at the Crawford Gallery.

Participants will be given a short introduction to these three inspiring project partners and a tour of the 'Tools of the Trade' Exhibition on view at Nano Nagle Place. This exhibition features artwork by students of St. Marie's on the Hill NS on Harbour View Rd in Knocknaheeny.

Workshop participants will then make their own driftwood model boat in the adjoining outdoor courtyard. All materials will be provided.
