Walking Stick Workshop

Walking Stick Workshop

Tutors from Lough Neagh Boats group provided a rare insight into this fascinating craft. Participants made their own crook or stick from traditional materials. Handles were made from a selection of hard woods and the shanks were made from Hazel. Participants were taught techniques such as dressing the handles, shank straightening and jointing methods. Participants were inspired by An Creagáns landscape and used local materials during these workshops. This programme was funded by National Lottery Funding through the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and through funding from Halifax Foundation for Northern Ireland
