Ironbridge Coracle Trust
As part of the Festival of Imagination we will be based at the Green Wood Centre between September 14th and 29th where we will have an exhibition of the work we have collected so far – and our plans for the new coracle Centre at the Greenwood Centre. We will bring some of the objects which used to be in the old shed including the famous witch! Those coracle men certainly had good imaginations!
We also plan to have net making demonstrations, puppet workshops, an Ironbridge Memory Map where people can add their own memories and photos.
As well as all that we will be looking for people to get involved in helping conserve many of the items we have rediscovered so they can go on show at the Coracle Centre. We will provide training, it’s easy!
We will also have a demonstration of the Pepper’s Ghost Effect – a brilliant Victorian illusion which we will be using in the old shed to create a Virtual Museum to tell the story of the Last Coracle shed in England.
