This is an on-going project, to be built sustainably, using recycled materials as far as possible. An old portacabin was given to us free of charge, and this will provide a storage unit around which the craft building will take shape. Surplus timber has been collected from local building projects, skips and building firms, as well as driftwood from East Lothian beaches.
David Robinson, a local architect, has kindly assisted us with plans and costings and has donated his work free of charge. The portacabin will be clad and a pitched roof added, this will be mainly used as a tool store. Attached to the portacabin will be an open fronted building which will provide shelter for craft workshops and a storage space for willow and cut flowers. We will use this craft building to host willow weaving and other workshops, building on two successful workshops held in 2018/19.
