For those of you who haven’t signed up for the Newsletter you won’t have heard that I have been chosen by the Crafts Council of Ireland to travel to Norway for two weeks on work placement at the Hardanger Boat Museum in Norheimsund south east of Bergen on the shores of the Hardanger Fjord . (It’s the third largest fjord in the world.)
Here’s one of the vessels at the museum the M/Y Faun built in 1916. What a beauty and below is the MS Paddy also from 1916 another good looking boat.
I’ll be involved with all aspects of work at the museum and will be starting at the rope walk which sounds knd of like hard work. There will of course more pictures of my trip and by the time I’m finished you’ll probably be sick of hearing about it. If you wish to contact me over the next two weeks to discuss having you own boat built I will be checking my e-mails but it will be sporadic so don’t be disappointed with a slow reply.
