Press Release: “Make Your Own” Sessions In Finisterre Stores Around the UK
For one week at the start of April, the team from Otter Surfboards will be taking their workshop on wheels as they hit the road to share the stoke of bodysurfing by running their “make your own” handplane courses in Finisterre stores around the country. Taking in St Agnes, Exeter, Bristol, London and Edinburgh, the three to four-hour weekend and evening sessions will see Finisterre’s shop floors transformed into workshop spaces as participants are guided through the process of making their own wooden handplanes. The aim of the sessions, beyond workshoppers taking away a great bodysurfing tool and learning new skills, is to foster reconnections; with the ocean environment, and with their hands through the act of making.
Workshop spaces cost from £120 per person and include a wooden handplane “blank”, full tuition from James Otter and use of all tools, refreshments, and beer and pizza.
