These skill development workshops are led by team members of our sister social business, Fogo Island Workshops. The workshops take place in the Society of United Fishermen Hall in Joe Batt's Arm, a short walk away from the Inn. On clear days, they can be run outdoors, allowing participants to woodwork en plein air while taking in the expansive and never-ending views of the North Atlantic. Participants will gain confidence using tools and finish with a functional object.
