Traditional Wooden Boatbuliding Skills in the UKThis report arises from the 2022 survey of traditional boatbuilding skills we carried out in partnership with the Wooden Boatbuilders Trade Association.

Its aims were to raise awareness, to create a list of endangered skills, and to consult with the boatbuilding community to develop an action plan to safeguard these skills as part of our intangible cultural heritage.

Findings from the report, authored by Colin Henwood and Mary Lewis, informed the 2023 edition of the Red List of Endangered Crafts published in May.
