16 Boat Building Loretta Moore







Gaining inspiration from visits to the East Wall men’s shed, an association which builds positive relationships around men’s mental health through creating, I built Ceiliuradh (2013).

A one woman built and powered one third scale currach boat, it was build with skills shared on a visit prior to a IMSA meeting. Ceiliuradh was created as an artist in the community project through the learning development programme managed by CREATE (the national development agency for collaborative arts). Ceiliuradh meaning celebration in Irish, was built to not only celebrate a tradition but also in appreciation of the community well-being work currently done by IMSA.
